After hours of head-banging over the past couple of days,
I have finally succeeded in installing EITHER 
xorg-clients-6.8.2_1 OR xterm-206_1.  Previously,
installing either port told me that it conflicted
with the other, in spite of having cvsupped my 
ports tree twice to ensure I was getting the most
recent version of the ports, hopefully including a
fix to the chicken-and-egg problem noted in 

Once I spotted an odd bit of output in the portupgrade
dialogue, I made a change to xorg-clients Makefile 
which allowed everything to install.  pkgdb -F afterwards
and all my dependencies are tidied up.

May I suggest the following patch to
