It is only updating old versions of -server that cause the problem. If
you have one of those versions installed, I think Kris's normal
suggestion is to pkg_delete -server and then upgrade XFree86. That can
save you an hour or so depending on how long it takes to reupdate
-libraries. For an accurate version(timestamp), you would have to look
at the plist for -server in cvsweb/cgi to see when Xfonts was moved to
-libraries. If you have one of the older versions installed, you need
to delete -server first. Once you get it updated, the problem won't
I build packages (-p) as I go and a -Puf of -libraries would have
reinstalled it very quickly. I think my ports/packages/All is around
1.3 GB right now. I maintain my ports on an AMD 2000 and do package
install/upgrades on 4 other slower machines.
