You should have followed the guidelines in /usr/ports/UPDATING:


  AFFECTS: users of Xorg
  AUTHOR: kris at FreeBSD.org

  Welcome, fearless user!  You are about to embark upon a mystical
  journey to the world of xorg 7.2.


The process described there should work for updating from 6.9 to 7.3
but it depends on how much you've mangled your ports from following
the guidelines on some random website.

In future, before upgrading ports, look at UPDATING beforehand.
