My concerns are these.

1 - Was this tested on freebsd 5. if no should the port have been made
to not install on 5.x, on a 5.x server I admin it has completely hosed
the ports setup I had to use pgdb -F to remove all x11 dependencies
that wont compile there is at least 5 diff x11 ports now that wont
compile or install with pkg_add.

2 - I read UPDATING but there is no mention of the
USE_NONDEFAULT_X11BASE=yes I had to set on freebsd 6.1 servers, is it
assumed everyone is using either 6.2 or 7.0? and is
USE_NONDEFAULT_X11BASE=yes the correct one to use when also using
WITHOUT_X11=    yes and WITHOUT_XPM=    yes?
