I doubt this will work. x11/xorg is a meta port, make deinstall will not
really deinstall anything but the skeleton port.
If you wish to go down this route, install something like
ports-mgmt/pkg_rmleaves. Then select xorg from the list and follow down
all the list of dependencies it will show you while it is running, until
everything is uninstalled.

Probably portupgrade -Rf xorg
