The build needs to have access to the Xserver as the user who is
building the port. Since you are root, the correct environment variables
would not be set as well no access to the server by its normal access

As your build-user:
(csh): setenv DISPLAY :0
(sh): export DISPLAY=:0

As the X user:
xhost +local: +inet:localhost

That should fixup that problem. At the beggining of the build there
is a message about this but not with the procedures that need to be done
to build the server with PGO successfully and expects someone to look
further into setting that up. Maybe its time to provide some URL's to
some directly relavent pages...

Good luck.
