XFree86 is still fine for most of the users out there (and just a few of them looking at stuff like "licenses"...). So, i can live with a "pkgdb -F", or a temporary change of bsd.port.mk. Well, a second one, like a "bsd.port.mk.xorg" in the tree (which is also up-to date) would be also nice, renaming that one after a cvsup would made it a lot easier for the moment.
