Maybe they read /usr/ports/UPDATING where
AFFECTS: users of x11/xterm, x11/xorg-clients, x11/XFree86-4-clients
AUTHOR: x11 at FreeBSD.org
Xterm no longer installs with '-static' prefix. Users should upgrade
XFree86-clients to 4.5.0_1 or xorg-clients to 6.8.2_1 or newer before
attempting upgrade of xterm to 206_1 or newer. Previous versions
xterm on deinstall so CONFLICTS have been set accordingly.
It worked for me back in November :).
