I have created a patch based on this link, and now xorg-clients builds 
just fine.  I am attaching a gzipped version of the patch (no idea if 
attachments will work to the list or not), or you can create one based 
on the URL (but tabs/spaces will almost certainly mess you up).  Unzip 
it in /usr/ports/x11/xorg-clients/files

Or you can do (from memory):

cd /usr/ports/x11/xorg-clients
make clean extract
cd work/xc
cp programs/xdriinfo/xdriinfo.c programs/xdriinfo/xdriinfo.c.orig
* edit programs/xdriinfo/xdriinfo.c and change the glXGetProcAddress to 
glXGetProcAddressARB on lines 61/2 (or thereabouts).
diff -u programs/xdriinfo/xdriinfo.c.orig programs/xdriinfo/xdriinfo.c > 
cd ../..
make patch
(which should apply cleanly)
(which should finish normally)

Then if it all worked you can say "portupgrade -w x11/xorg-clients" 
which should install what you have just rebuilt.  The patch will survive 
csvup and would need to be deleted if this issue is ever fixed.

Then portupgrade x11/xterm should work fine.
