Re-read the previous replies and re-read man script(1) paying careful
attention to the syntax of the (optional) arguments. xorg-upgrade is the
name of the output file that script(1) will write to (i.e. name it
anything you want, how about xorg-upgrade.log). xorg-upgrade is merely a
suggested name for it.

The wording of the /usr/ports/UPDATING entry can be misleading if you
read it quickly and make what appears to be a reasonable assumption
about how script(1) is used, viz. "run the xorg 7.2 upgrade inside a
script(1) session." followed by the "# script xorg-upgrade" example.
