I had a similar problem. xterm-206_1 conflicted with xorg-clients-6.8.2_1.
portmanager suggested removing xorg-clients after which xterm installed but
xorg-clients wouldn't build anymore. Some Googling suggested that the
nVidia driver port (I don't know whether you're using this or not) replaced
glx.h causing the xorg-clients to fail (unchecked) and reinstalling
xorg-libraries would fix it. This worked for me.
I'm not sure whether you're having the same problem or not but I thought I'd
mention this just in case.
 I also had this problem with 5.4-STABLE but to get around it there I
installed a binary package to save time.
