I also did an upgrade that is still going...with a whole bunch of xorg packages (I didn't count, like you did). I think that some of these got installed also because of a change in xrender. So some got installed as that was upgrading. Along the way it also installed python26! It looks like this is because it installed xorg-xcb-proto @1.3_0+python26. I am not sure if this will work or not because I have not, and was not planning to run: sudo python_select python26.

>I< didn't count ... computers are good at that :-)

iMac:~ mark$ sudo port installed | grep xorg -c
