It would appear you are skipping over the relevant portion of UPDATING. The
message you are seeing appears when your environment does not have
XORG_UPGRADE=yes set in its environment.
This is necessary even after you have completed the instructions, and for
future updates. The exact reasoning and such was discussed on the ports list
and can be found in the archives. I believe someone (Kris?) said that this
will be necessary for the time being, but not at some yet-to-be-determined
point in the future.
