It seems to me like your ports tree is not up to date.
The first thing you want to do is update it. The easiest method is
portsnap. This is explained in the handbook.
Then there are 2 possibilities:
Either you have an old version of X installed (which seems to be the
case). You will then have to update X by following the steps described
in /usr/ports/UPDATING.
Or you don't have X installed. In this case you should build it with
cd /usr/ports/x11/xorg && make install clean
Anyway it would be of great help if you could provide a more exhaustive
error log and the output of pkg_info to see what you have installed.

If some things seem unclear and you have difficulties with English I
can reply in French.

Bien le bonjour de Nancy!
