I have the same problem, on two machines, with updated ports.
Machine a:
root at kg-v2# uname -a
FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE #4: Sat Jul 16 02:07:14
CEST 2011     root at  amd64
root at kg-v2# grep xcb-aux /usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/*
root at kg-v2#

Machine b:
root at kg-quiet# uname -a
FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE #1: Sat Jan  7
14:05:57 CET 2012     root at
root at kg-quiet# grep xcb-aux /usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/*
root at kg-quiet#

For comparison, here is output from another machine, where I haven't
updated ports yet:
root at kg-v7# uname -a
FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE #7: Sat Jul  9 23:00:31
CEST 2011     root at  amd64
root at kg-v7# grep xcb-aux /usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/*
/usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/xcb-aux.pc:Libs: -L${libdir} -lxcb-aux
root at kg-v7# pkg_info -W /usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/xcb-aux.pc
/usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/xcb-aux.pc was installed by package

Upgrading (portupgrade -R) xfce4-wm fails on both machine a and b, like
