I just installed FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE on a computer and after failing to get XFree86 4.3.1,1 going on my DVI LCD monitor and nVidia FX5200 card, I wanted to try my luck with X.Org's server, but the port simply refuses to install.I tried to install it a couple of weeks ago and it gave me tons of errors even then, this time, it gave me the following error:
<paste> ndation"' -DXVENDORNAMESHORT='"X.Org"' -c xhost.c xhost.c: In function `change_host': xhost.c:423: error: syntax error before "siaddr" xhost.c:434: error: `siaddr' undeclared (first use in this function) xhost.c:434: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once xhost.c:434: error: for each function it appears in.) xhost.c: In function `get_hostname': xhost.c:883: error: `XServerInterpretedAddress' undeclared (first use in this fu nction) xhost.c:883: error: `sip' undeclared (first use in this function) xhost.c:884: warning: ISO C89 forbids mixed declarations and code xhost.c:888: error: syntax error before ')' token *** Error code 1

I did the same thing for the same reason last week and got the same error. The problem was caused by stale files on my system.
Explicitly installing /usr/ports/x11/xorg-libraries before installing /usr/ports/x11/xorg did the trick.
This error was just the first in a series of problems caused by stale files, but I fought my way through the installation process and now have xorg running with the latest nvidia drivers so now my video card works and I'm happy. :)
