	It can still be there even if you followed /usr/ports/UPDATING

	I followed UPDATING.  xorg-clients was still there post
	"portupgrade -a".  portupgrade bombed out on me but you
	will note that the xorg meta port did update.  This was
	with portupgrade-devel and after a clean "portupgrade -Rf

	Note also this was before "cd /usr/ports && make index"
	was added to UPDATING.  Mind you I did run "make index"
	prior to the entire upgrade process.  I've found the indexs
	return by fetchindex to cause problems in the past so I
	just rebuild them even it they do take some time on my older
