Actually, it's kwin that requires a Mesa version more recent than the
one shipped by default when WITH_NEW_XORG is not enabled. Since the pkg
cluster did not have this option on for FreeBSD 9 and 10, the final
metapackage was not being built.

I think this will go away with 9-STABLE and 10-STABLE after r351411
