FWIW - I followed the instructions in UPDATING - unfortunately I did 'em 
pretty much as I read 'em... so I noticed the CAVEAT *after* the 
upgrade and mergebase was complete - doh!

So I installed x11/xorg after the upgrade, and promptly got the 'cannot 
open fixed'... which was sorted by reinstalling misc and font-misc-misc 
and font-cursor-misc. Is installing xorg after the upgrade a likely 
cause of problems?

Also, ahem, I didn't script the upgrade, so no log sorry :-(. I've got 
another (6-STABLE) box to do later, so I'll log that one ... promise...
