Not much of an idea; while I use portmaster to update the ports on
systems where I update base in-place via src update, I don't recall
encountering that -- and on one of those systems (my laptop), I update
the installed ports daily.

I find that /usr/local/include/X11/Xft/Xft.h was installed by
x11-fonts/libXft, so re-installing it may help.
