	Not yet... I haven't finished the upgrade. I'm still mid upgrade.
I won't go any further until I find out whats happening. So thats not
the case.

	So how did everyone else in the world get away without running 
into this? I see that it initially was put into /usr/X11R6 as part of
xorg-libraries-6.9.0 . The additional Xfont came about because :

1) portupgrade was upgrading xorg-fonts-encodings-6.9.0_1 to 
2) portupgrade then realized it needed mkfontscale so started to work
	on that
3) mkfontscale needed libfontenc

4) With those 2 resolved, it then went for bdftopcf

5) bdftopcf needed libXfont

	So at this point it was installing libXfont when it already had
the one from xorg-libraries-6.9.0 there, hence the problem apparently

	Ok, so what do I do now? I'm mid build, I don't have X installed
or running, and I have atleast 1894 font files that are incorrect at the
current moment.... I still don't get why I ran into this and others didn't.
Did I miss a step that would have removed the xorg-libraries?
