This looks like an incompletely removed old version of X.  In the
current versio n, /usr/X11R6 must be a symlink if it exists at
all.Please read /usr/ports/UPDAT ING (entry of 20070519) for the

My system is just fine as is, thanks, am I stuck not installling any
of these ports unless I upgrade X?

No, you don't need to install X. Yes, you *do* need to install some of the X libraries because they are used by ports you are trying to install.

If you've never installed X on this box, just run mergebase.sh (/usr/ports/Tools/scripts - IIRC) to create the symlink. Then install the pkg or port you want, which will install the libraries needed.

I have two headless servers running websites and other services, and both have X stuff installed. That's the nature of shared libraries.
