For an interesting variation, I have a totally up to date ports tree,
with the latest versions of xterm and xorg-clients already installed:
xterm-206_1 Terminal emulator for the X Window System
xorg-clients-6.8.2_1 X client programs and related files from X.Org
then, portupgrade -fp xterm xorg-clients
===> Installing for xterm-206_1
===> xterm-206_1 conflicts with installed package(s):
They install files into the same place.
Please remove them first with pkg_delete(1).
*** Error code 1
Again, please note that xterm conflicts with the version of the clients
it is supposed to work with. This is repeatable on 2 systems I have
tried so far, 5.4-RELEASE/i386 and 6.0-STABLE/amd64.
