That doesn't always work. If relpath fails, make stops. relpath is
eventually doing someting like:

relpath /usr/dfports /usr/ports/foo/bar

Which makes it break. The problem also sometimes is that a dfport is 
looking for dependancies in the dfport dir instead of the regular ports 

On a box you don't mind breaking, try cleaning out the port working dirs
out first (portsclean -C), and then a pkg_delete -a to oblitterate and
deinstall all the packages.

Try building X from scratch again from the x11/XFree86-4 metaport, and 
you'll see what I mean.
