in trying to build x11/xorg, it hung up on building x11/xdriinfo, which cold not find the libGL.so.1 (which --because of the nvidia driver I'd installed) was in both /usr/local llib AND /usrX11R6/lib.  This was because the libGL.so.1 had a UNK symbol, XDamageAdd, with no text for it.  In searching, I finally fouond the missing XDamageAdd  in libXdamage.so.1, which I found as being generated from x11/libXdamage.  I built it, and the orignal x11/driinfo port sailed on home.  Lastly, I checked the Makefile in the x11/xdriinfo port, but it had no dependency for anything at all.  Someone needs to add a dependency on x11/libXdamage.
make sure x11/libXdamage is NOT installed, then build x11/driinfo, where it will fail early in the build, during the configure script work.
Add a dependency to the x11/driinfo port, for x11/libXdamage.
