The relase notes:

The warning:
With this release the distfiles are no longer split into smaller pieces as of 
yet (split distfiles may or may not be available later). There's a 
possibility of creative use of tar flags to only extract what is needed for 
individual ports, but that has not been done (yet). Consequently this 
increases space you need to build xorg from metaport. You need more than 
about 5GB free space to build metaport from scratch. Fortunately you can use 
portupgrade, which will do a 'make clean' before and after each build if you 
upgrade already installed ports. Another option is to build each port 
separately of course.

Also ftp.x.org which is the first in the list of mirrors might seem a bit 
slow, so you might set MASTER_SITE_XORG to something else in make.conf
