What I found (in a clean Slackware system)

- modified the Slackbuild to use fox version 1.7.50
- download, (slack)build and install fox-toolkit
- download, (slack)build xfe

As expected, xfe won't build as it tests for fox-toolkit 1.60, so I 
modified the configure to check for 1.7 instead and use this one.
Next, the compiler complained in several (?) files about ... eg. missing 
definition for TRUE, FALSE, so I tried to fix a few files, but it seems 
that the API has changed and fixing would require some effort which I 
have not done. I have to admit, I am not good at this,...

With version 1.7 still installed on my system, I set the SlackBuild 
'back' to 1.6.50 (actually, the current still refers to 1.6.49) and 
tried to build xfe which was succesfull. So if really needed, both 
versions can coexist, but as said, xfe won't build out of the box with 

FWW, If I am the only one using XFE feel free to 'abandon it' and 
upgrade the fox-toolkit.
