This is quite possibly a bug that occurs when upgrading from pkg-1.2.7
to pkg-220.127.116.11. The solution is to run:
# pkg clean -a
# pkg update -f
That will delete everything you've got in your package cache and force
pkg to refetch all the catalogues from the repositories you're using.
Oh -- depending on your hardware, you might want to use the new-xorg
