Do you have xorg-6.9 installed before starting? If not, you might well
want to install it after the upgrade. If it is already installed, it
will be automatically upgraded, so don't worry about it.
That said, my experience in updating about a dozen systems is to roll
the ports tree back to before 7.2 was committed and install xorg
(portinstall xorg) before starting the upgrade. It's not essential that
you do so, but it does eliminate some rough edges in the upgrade as the
main test case was almost certainly with xorg-6.9 installed on systems
prior to the upgrade.
