xf86-video-ati-7.5.0 is only for i386 amd64, while you are running powerpc64. But no /usr/ports/UPDATING material about it.

I do not see anything about it in /usr/ports/UPDATING but when I attempted to update my powerpc64/GENERIC64vtsc context's ports after updating to 10.1-RELEASE I got:

===>>> Launching child to update xf86-video-ati-6.14.6_4 to xf86-video-ati-7.5.0

===>>> x11/xorg 1/2 >> xf86-video-ati-6.14.6_4 (1/3)

(Note: when one boots a PowerMac with an explicit "boot KERNELNAME" freebsd-version -k returns /boot/kernel information instead of /boot/KERNELNAME information. But I did not boot that way: This was a /boot/kernel use.)

(WITHOUT_CLANG is just because the last time I tried WITH_DEBUG_FILES with a clang build involved it failed. It has been some time since I retried that.)
