OK, the final version of the X.Org conversion patch has hit the tree.
No ports appear to be broken by the upgrade at this time. X.Org has
been made the default X distribution on -current. Other versions of
FreeBSD retain the same default X distribution (XFree86) but can upgrade
by setting X_WINDOW_SYSTEM=xorg in /etc/make.conf.
To upgrade, you must remove your XFree86 ports and install the xorg
ports. It couldn't be done with portupgrade, unfortunately, because we
are keeping the XFree86 ports around. To upgrade:
pkg_delete -f /var/db/pkg/imake-4* /var/db/pkg/XFree86-*
cd /usr/ports/x11/xorg && make install
If you want to keep the old XFree86 on -current, simply set
X_WINDOW_SYSTEM=xfree86-4 in make.conf
I am currently working on updating -current's sysinstall for X.Org.
Until then it will be broken.
