Thanks Dan. I was just considering the -f option a few minutes ago - so with
your prompting it is busy building as we speak (well, type...).
BTW: I use 'make update' and portupgrade -Fa daily, and then run portupgrade
whenever I feel the urge. I am in the habit of using -rR on portupgrade, so
generally my ports are fairly current, and well co-ordinated. For example,
the versions of freetype and fontconfig you listed above are correct on my
system. The problems I am having here are really quite unusual.
Anyway, let's see what happens after the portupgrade -f is done. This may
take a little while though.
Thanks again for your time.
