Manish,

There's a make.conf and script on this page which might be of help in
keeping your ports uptodate:

http://www.shute.org.uk/misc/freebsd_uptodate.html

When you've 'suped your ports, you'll notice that there is some stuff
about xfce in /usr/ports/UPDATING. It might be related to your
problems.
