If you don't need vga or via drivers, do this:

   # cd /usr/ports/x11-drivers/xorg-drivers
   # make config
   (select keyboard, mouse and *only* what video drivers you need on your H/W)

Then delete the offending driver packages:

   pkg_delete -f xf86-video-via-\* xf86-video-vga-\*

Note: you may well have several other extraneous video driver packages
installed.  They can be deleted in the same way.

If you do need one of those drivers, then don't upgrade your X windows just
yet.  There will be more updates coming out over time, no doubt.  You could
ask on the freebsd-x11 at ... list about what is happening in that regard.

x11/xorg-protos and x11/xphelloworld have been removed -- just delete
what you have installed:

  # pkg_delete -f xphelloworld-1.0.1_1 xorg-protos-\*

Now fix up the dependency linkages in your package database:

  # pkgdb -F

and then proceed with the upgrade as before:

  # portupgrade -a
