I don't want to be thick, but what are the exact steps
involved in this? My installed ports are already up to
date, Id just want to rebuild the ones that depend on
some version of X. So I guess I'd first install the
xorg meta-port, then delete--what?, to make sure I get
all the XFree86 versions?--and then do what to rebuild
properly everything with depends?

Thanks. I will wait if there is going to be some easy
method in the future.
