I have `upgraded' x11/xorg twice so far, following the instructions in
`/usr/ports/UPDATING', and fonts work fine.  Even my own personal fonts,
installed in `/usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/local', which I manually built
from their BDF sources several years ago, are picked up fine by the new
X11 installation.  In fact, this post was written in an xterm(1) window
using my own modified copy of the `lucidasanstypewriter-12' font.

Marijn, if you are having problems with the upgrade of x11/xorg, then
please show us a build log, as Kris mentioned, so we can help you track
down what the problem is and how to resolve it.
