I have run into the same issue, and I have reported this to the 
maintainers.  This diff resolved the issue on my end, which allowed all 
Xorg packages to build:

$ git diff Mk/
diff --git a/Mk/ b/Mk/

I believe this fix will be included in the upcoming release. basically 
we need to ensure that dri3proto is built along with Xorg as I believe 
some of the newer xorg drivers have a hard dependency on dri3.
