You did it in the wrong order. 

#search xorg-clients

Port:   xorg-clients-6.8.2_1
Path:   /usr/ports/x11/xorg-clients
Info:   X client programs and related files from X.Org
Maint:  x11 at
Index:  x11
B-deps: expat-1.95.8_3 fontconfig-2.3.2,1 freetype2-2.1.10_1 imake-6.8.2
        libXft-2.1.7 perl-5.8.7 pkgconfig-0.19 png-1.2.8_2         
R-deps: expat-1.95.8_3 fontconfig-2.3.2,1 freetype2-2.1.10_1
        libXft-2.1.7 pkgconfig-0.19 png-1.2.8_2 xorg-libraries-6.8.2   

You can see that xorg-clients depends on xterm. Install it first and 
then xorg-clients
