Note that it did nothing here.  This is probably because you already
have an old version of Xaw3d built and installed, so it could not
build the new one that it needed.  Get into the habit of using 'make
clean' before and after you build and install ports, or better, use
portupgrade to build and upgrade your ports, because it solves your
next problem of having the old Xaw3d package still installed when you
install the new one, leading to stale files on your system and other
such problems.
