Yes: Update all of XFree86 to the latest version in ports (4.4).

XFree86-libraries does contain The real conundrum is how you 
ended up with a system like this. I can make a few guesses: You upgraded KDE 
via packages - that KDE has been built against xorg (which is the default X 
distribution for 5.3 and contains, while XFree86-4.3 only 
contains a libXinerama.a).

Or maybe you compiled KDE yourself - against Xorg or XFree86-4.4 and then 
downgraded to XFree86-4.3?
