Did you upgrade xorg following the instructions? E.g.:
$ less -gi -p20070519 /usr/ports/UPDATING

$ grep libfontconfig.la /usr/ports/x11-fonts/*/pkg-plist

But I suggest you check if your Xorg upgrade is done properly first, 6.0 used 
6.9 xorg.

Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
