Hi all,

today I noticed a security issue with XFree86 libs in my daily sec. mailing 
from one of my servers, so I updated my ports collection via 
"cvsup /root/ports-supfile" (ports-all). But after that, I still can't 
update my X libs:

[ 11:59 mx2 at ebox XFree86-4-libraries ] make install clean
===>  XFree86-libraries-4.4.0_1 has known vulnerabilities:
>> xpm --- image decoding vulnerabilities.
>> Please update your ports tree and try again.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/x11/XFree86-4-libraries.

Any ideas how to solve this?
Greetings and TIA, Matthias
