modular xorg upgrade test done

I just finished upgrading a test machine to 7.2. It's running 
FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE #10: Tue May 15 09:30:33 UTC 2007

First I made sure my ports tree is up to date and updated all ports 
to a clean state before starting xorg 7.2 upgrade.

It's been a rough ride as after hours of compile time xorg came out 
with a 'fixed font missing' error message. As I was unable to figure 
this one out (tried several things), I removed 
/usr/local/X11/fonts/*, did a `portupgrade -fk --batch xorg-font\* 
font\*' and after that, X started well.

The upgrade path was not that easy but in the end all worked well.

Thanks for your good work!
