The mtree specification file (etc/mtree/BSD.x11-4.dist) got a bit cleaned up. 
A lot of directories that were previously there, but were only used by a few 
ports (mostly parts of either of X11 distribution) got moved to respective 
ports plists. Changes to ports were already tested, maintainers have been 
notified (If I somehow missed someone, it was completely unintentional and I 
apologise) so I don't expect any problems from this.
More about this changes is here:

One of notable changes is move of share/pixmaps to mtree, so if you have a new 
port in works that installs files there under X PREFIX, you don't need to put 
it in plist as mtree will handle this now.

Note that for X_WINDOW_SYSTEM=xorg another mtree is used for now, though plan 
is to revert to using etc/mtree/BSD.x11-4.dist again at the next upgrade of 
Xorg ports.
