A lot of packages want OpenGL support, so they pull in graphics/glu and graphics/MesaLib. This is annoying because xorg-libs comes with its own GL implementation, and the MesaLib version is incompatible with direct rendering.
Install e.g. devel/SDL
I'd suggest glu and MesaLib only being pulled in if no xorg-libs is installed, regardless of Direct Rendering.
