Gentlemen, good day!

First I should ask some simple questions:
- I assume that xorg-server and xorg-libraries were recompiled for the
  version 6.9.0_6?
- How you updated the xorg? Via portupgrade, by hands, some other way?

I will try to build the 6.9.0_6 both on 6.x and 7-current, but I expect
that it will be done on Monday. I've tested my patches only for 6.2
as PR says. Meanwhile you can restore Makefiles, remove patches and
downgrade xorg-{server,libraries}. This is not an ideal option, but
if you're really in a great need for graphics -- give it a try, But
systems will be vulnerable then.

I have no idea now.  But the output from the 'nm /usr/X11R6/lib/libXfont.so'
and 'nm /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/fonts/libbitmap.so' will be appreciated.
And the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf -- too.

Thanks for your report!
