Thanks, I misdiagnosed that one. The problem was some files were discarded because of a bad checksum due to a Unicode translation issue. (Byte order marks added to a UTF8 file.)

>> Running “make all-depends-list” on x11-wm/xfce4 shows x11-servers/xorg-server as a dependency, but it does not include all of the dependencies for xorg-server. For example:
>> xfce4 $ echo $PORTSDIR
>> /data/scratch/janm/p4/ports-2023.1/ports
>> xfce4 $ make all-depends-list | egrep 'xorg-server|libxcvt'
>> /data/scratch/janm/p4/ports-2023.1/ports/x11-servers/xorg-server
>> xfce4 $ cd ../../x11-servers/xorg-server
>> xorg-server $ make all-depends-list | egrep 'xorg-server|libxcvt'

This case still seems to be a regression, as far as I can see.
