The best way I have found to do this is to upgrade everything depending on 
XFree86-libraries, and everything that XFree86-libraries depends on. That 
way, you know anything running in X, including X itself, gets upgraded. 
This will also upgrade Qt and KDE.

To do this:

portupgrade -rR XFree86-libraries

Be prepared to wait a long time.

If you have a really fast connection, a fast CPU for compiling, and lots of 
disk space, and, you are insane, you can also upgrade your *ENTIRE* system 

portupgrade -arR

Go on holiday after issuing this command.
