XFree86 port broken?

I am trying to build dfports/x11/XFree86-server after having installed 

First, there is a problem with a patch: patch-xc::lib::font::fontfile
it prompts for the filenames to be patched and I had to open the 
aforementioned file to get the filenames and feed them manually.

Second, soon after I run "make install" I get this:
Error: shared libray "X11.6" ... I give up

why, because it seems XFree86-libraries get installed with the minor 
number in the filename (libX11.so.6.2) and ldconfig will see only the 
libX11.so.6 one. Actually, all the lib files installed by this package 
present the same problem.

I wrote a small script to symlink these libs to the proper format and 
restart the make install. I get tons of error like this: warnings about __
FreeBSD_version. But then:

Third: /usr/libexec/binutils212/elf/ld: cannot find -lgnumalloc

After googling a lot I discover this FreeBSD.cf file in which the use of 
gnumalloc is defined. As a result, I do this
setenv UseGnuMalloc NO
and retry make install


In file included from Imakefile.c:16:
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/config/Imake.tmpl:104: DragonFly.cf: No such file or 

Well, at this point I give up and I write this note to the group.

FYI I decided to installed XF86 rather than X.org because I saw in the 
other posting that it can cause dependency problems later on (one post 
mentions the mandatory use of portupgrade with special settings to 
ignore XF86)
I tried the goBSD package but it freezes when I run it.

All this happens with the latest dfports and FreeBSD ports, and the OS 
is at STABLE form 3 days ago.

what should I do now?
