Of course not "or" - "of". Maybe it belongs to section
"ServerLayout", I'm not sure, it changes quite often
which options are supported and where they have to be
placed. :-)

And in worst case, use "portdowngrade" to get an older version
of the port (may require recompiling a lot of dependencies in
both directions).

portdowngrade x11/xorg -s :pserver:anoncvs at

(Maybe you need to be more specific as "x11" is only a metaport.)
