I just finished building kde and X. In the last 2 weeks I have
portupgrade -puf portupgrade
portupgrade -pufr png
portupgrade -pufr fontconfig
portupgrade -pufr libxml2
portupgrade -pufr ghostscript-gnu

I have also done a portupgrade -pufR XFree86 on a box with problems. It 
wasn't X with the problem it turns out. I just wanted a clean X. There 
was a minor problem with ghostscript-gnu's font directory during the 
deinstall phase. I removed and did a make package to reinstall it.

What portupgrade options are you using? When you do "-r", you have to 
force "-f".
