It's possible that the start script for XFree86 that the port installs,
is installed in a directory further down in the PATH variable. This
means that when you call startx, you're starting the older version, which
in turn calls the older version of X. 

Your best bet is to remove the port entirely, remove the existing X
server and re-install the port. This way you'll only have one version of
X on the box. 

The other way would be to get a list of all files that the port
installed and remove any other copies of those files in locations other
than where the port installed. This is risky though, because you might
delete something that is actually needed.
