Since several other people have already reported success with xfce, I
suspect something went wrong during the Xorg upgrade on your machine.
Some port(s) might have been built with old headers, old libraries or
linked with both old and new libraries. If you don't want to spend any
time trying to figure out the exact cause, the one sure-fire way to
resolve this is to delete all your packages, then delete everything
under /usr/local (backup what you still need!) and reinstall
everything. If you do want to figure it out you could look at the
output of "ldd /usr/local/bin/xfce4-session" and see if it links to
different versions of the same library.
