If you find that all of the X-related dependencies of an new or
updated port are being pointed at the XFree86 packages, then it sounds
like you don't have a completely up to date version of /usr/ports/Mk/.

You should have bsd.port.mk version 1.495.  grep(1) should find
matches for 'X_WINDOW_SYSTEM' within that file.  As I remember it took
a few hours after the announcement came out for all of the updates to
percolate out to all of the cvsup(1) servers.
