A Word of thanks to Kent and Dan who took the time to help me figure out my
In the end I rebiult XFree86-libraries using portupgrade -f, and thereafter I
was able to use portupgrade to upgrade all the Xfree86-font* ports from 4.2
to 4.3 without any further problems.
Apparently there was a specific issue somewhere between 4.2 and 4.3 where the
installation of the Xfree86-server at version 4.3 would remove a component of
XFree86-libraries which is required by the Xfree86-font* ports. So, the
sequence to follow is this:
1) upgrade -server to 4.3
2) upgrade -libraries to 4.3
3) upgrade -font* to 4.3
I had unwittingly done (2) before (1).
Thanks again to the more knowledgable folks who take the time to answer
questions on this list!
