No, the problem's the other way round. Every time I want to portupgrade
something else, portupgrade also wants to upgrade Xorg. I don't want the
latest Xorg after the horror stories I heard.

That's why I'm building firefox-1.0.1 independently of the ports system, so
that I don't have to go through the pain of upgrading Xorg (on which
firefox depends, naturally) as well.

Now, if I could be certain that Xorg has settled down, I wouldn't mind
upgrading from 6.7.0 to 6.8.1 and have done with it.
