Presumably your portupgrade.

No, there's a reason the library changed name, after all.

This problem usually happens when you forget to update all ports that
depend on an updated port.  Try portupgrade -a or similar to repair
it.

Well, that's what first brought the problem to my attention. I did a cvsup, then a fetchindex, then a porstdb -u, then a pkgdb -F, and finally a portupgrade -a, and had a number of ports that failed. Five of them have to do with xfce4, all related to the library problem. Well, I'll try a new cvsup and portupgrade.
