Hmm, how did you end up with 7.2 installed, with the old /usr/X11R6 dir?
I thought that went away in the transition from 6.9 to 7.2...

Anyhow, following Kris' instructions in UPDATING should see you through
the upgrade OK. I did it quite painlessly on a few machines, although
others did report difficulties. If it comes to it, you can uninstall
all your X-related ports and do a clean install of Xorg 7.3 - it'll
take a while, but it will get the job done.

I hope it works out!
