Hi Richard,

It's trickier this time. You should read the comments on Xorg in 
/usr/ports/UPDATING, even if you're installing and not updating. I've 
given up for the moment due to some weird problem with missing OpenGL 
drivers. I'll install Xorg 7.2 [or higher?] when I upgrade to 7.0-RELEASE.

Regards,
Adam J Richardson
