Perfectly understandable and I thank you for the efforts you're going 
through to get portmanager updated so quickly.

So for a quick fix at the moment, I should just go into 
/usr/ports/graphics/dri and /usr/ports/graphics/xfree86-dri and run 
"make deinstall", then run "portmanager -u" and it should install the 
proper version for the dependancies, correct?

Thanks again!
