Yes, I did; that was an early first worry.

Right; but that's what I've already done, hence the confusion. I do have most of these to a current version: monopoly/etc/X11 $ pkg_info -r XFree86-4.3.0,1 Information for XFree86-4.3.0,1: Depends on: Dependency: expat-1.95.5 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-2.2.0 Dependency: XFree86-libraries-4.3.0_5 Dependency: Xft-2.1_8 Dependency: wrapper-1.0_3 Dependency: XFree86-fontScalable-4.3.0 Dependency: XFree86-fontCyrillic-4.3.0 Dependency: XFree86-clients-4.3.0_3 and running portupgrade(1) doesn't do much, as it apparently thinks I'm all set: monopoly/etc/X11 # portupgrade XFree86 monopoly/etc/X11 # Yet I'm still running 4.2. This is why I'm confused :-/.
