Well, I'm successfully running xorg-server-1.7.7 since May without
doing anything else to other xorg-related ports:

xorg-server-1.7.7,1                 >   succeeds index (index has 1.7.5,1)

but it could be just a matter of luck :)

I mean this (from rnolad):
"I have an update to 1.7.7 queued up in my tree along with an updated 
pixman.  It is a little tedious as all of the server based ports need to 
be updated and drivers need PORTREVISION bumps.  I'll try and get it 
committed in the next couple of days though."

He mentions update (not just PORTREVISION bump) of pixman and other
server-based ports. I have some vague insight into what he means,
but I'd say it should be done by a person more familiar (than me) with xorg
infrastucture with all its interdependencies.
