That would depend on port that depends on either of scalable fonts:
The change goes thusly:
XFree86-4-fontDefaultBitmaps -> xorg-fonts-miscbitmaps
Most ports that depend on scalable fonts probably want truetype ones.
Moreover, when port that depended on XFree86-4-fontScalable is upgraded, it
will pick up the dependancy it wants. The easy way is to have both ports
installed and let future upgrades register the right dependancy as specified
by maintainers. Though if you want to, you can check which one the port
expects in it's Makefile.
