I don't know about packages, but if you have recently upgraded 
your ports tree you should find the xorg meta port in 
/usr/ports/x11/xorg .

Generally it will work fine with nearly all packages 
you already installed on your system (one gnome applet doesn't 
run, but I can live with that). You might run into problems
installing new ports that depend on old XFree86 stuff - but I 
haven't found anything serious yet.
