In the /usr/ports/UPDATING said:
   It is recommended that you run the xorg 7.2 upgrade inside a script(1)
   session.  This way, if something goes wrong, you will have hopefully
   saved enough information for the developers to debug the problem.
   Make sure you choose a filesystem with lots of space for the script

   # script xorg-upgrade

See that 'script(1)', so run 'man 1 script' to learn more about 'script'.
