First the D'Oh! question: you did restart the X server after installing the upgrade didn't you? Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Esc will kill your current X server, and depending on your setup, may cause another server instance to start up automatically. Or it may need you to run startx(1) again. XFree86 -version will tell you the version of the XFree86-Server port. The straight XFree86-4.3.0,1 port doesn't actually install very much itself: % pkg_info -L XFree86-4.3.0,1 Information for XFree86-4.3.0,1: Files: as it only exists to cause the other required XFree86 ports to be installed as dependencies of it: % pkg_info -r XFree86-4.3.0,1 Information for XFree86-4.3.0,1: Depends on: Dependency: expat-1.95.6_1 Dependency: png-1.2.5_2 Dependency: pkgconfig-0.15.0 Dependency: imake-4.3.0_1 Dependency: freetype2-2.1.4_1 Dependency: fontconfig-2.2.90_3 Dependency: XFree86-libraries-4.3.0_6 Dependency: XFree86-Server-4.3.0_10 Dependency: Xft-2.1.2 Dependency: XFree86-fontEncodings-4.3.0 Dependency: XFree86-fontScalable-4.3.0 Dependency: XFree86-fontDefaultBitmaps-4.3.0 Dependency: XFree86-fontCyrillic-4.3.0 Dependency: XFree86-font75dpi-4.3.0 Dependency: XFree86-font100dpi-4.3.0 Dependency: XFree86-documents-4.3.0 Dependency: XFree86-clients-4.3.0_3 Dependency: wrapper-1.0_3 Dependency: XFree86-FontServer-4.3.0_2 Essentially you need imake and all of the ports with XFree86 in their names to be at version 4.3.0 or better. portupgrade(1) will ease the pain of doing that remarkably.
