It looks like most, if not all, of your old xorg install
is still under /etc/X11R6, which should not be if
you followed /usr/ports/UPDATING.  It may be safe
to delete if xorg 7.2 was otherwise properly installed
in /usr/local, though I suspect some (perhaps very
long list of) things might have to be recompiled (again!).
