Just cvsup'd my system for the weekend and found three additions
to the /usr/ports/CHANGES file.  They referenced a replacement of
the XFREE86_VERSION variable by the X_WINDOW_SYSTEM variable,
a big update to PHP ports and to add more flexibility  plus
an announcement that "OpenLDAP version 2.2 is now the default..."

I'm still learning FreeBSD and deal with issues as they come up. I
remember reading postings regarding the XFree86 issue but thought
I had the option to leave well enough alone. Maybe not.

I don't know about the other two, but as for the X_WINDOW_SYSTEM
variable, it looks to me like it's related to this:

It only applies to -CURRENT right now, but it's as easy as adding a line
to rc.conf if you want to stay with XFree86.

Sorry, that should have been make.conf. It's too early ...

Thanks for the update.  Just read all of the related messages and I think I
can handle this.

Need to pause for a moment and give myself a FreeBSD pep talk.

Thanks again.

Well, that being said, I did just encounter a problem when trying to update the ports database after a cvsup (running 5.2.1-RELEASE-p9 with XOrg):

smogmonster# portsdb -uU
Updating the ports index ... Generating INDEX.tmp - please wait.."Makefile", line 34: Malformed conditional (${XFREE86_VERSION} == 3 && !defined(WITHOUT_X))
"Makefile", line 36: if-less endif
"Makefile", line 36: Need an operator
make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue
===> chinese/arphicttf failed
*** Error code 1
1 error

My /etc/make.conf is:

# Created: Fri Apr 16 06:11:06 2004
# Setting to use base perl from ports:
CFLAGS= -O -pipe

I commented the line with the new X_WINDOW_SYSTEM variable to see if that were the problem, but it didn't change anything.

This is what I found in the CHANGE file. I'm sure you already read it but maybe
there's something that could help by taking a second look. This is the best that I
can offer:

The XFREE86_VERSION variable is replaced by the X_WINDOW_SYSTEM variable.
XFREE86_VERSION may no longer be used by ports Makefiles. X_WINDOW_SYSTEM may
currently be set to xorg, xfree86-4, and xfree86-3 (please use :L in checking
it). Several X_*_PORT variables are provided by which map to the
appropriate port for the X_WINDOW_SYSTEM chosen.
