I don't really know either :-)
I compiled the package into a pkg_comp sandbox (4.99.55 w/o XFree86 but
with Xorg modular).

I had to modify your Makefile as follow:
--- Makefile.orig       2007-12-19 02:57:45.000000000 +0100
+++ Makefile    2008-03-18 10:27:52.000000000 +0100

-.include "../../wip/modular-xorg-macros/buildlink3.mk"
+.include "../../x11/pixman/buildlink3.mk"
 .include "../../mk/bsd.pkg.mk"

At least I get the binaries.
I will try this evening to use it - as soon as I get home :-)
