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):
make clean extract
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 >
(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.
