Probably nothing that will matter for you. I am not sure though. The
recent fixes are:
- Don't build the DGA extension on the unsupported architectures.
- Apply patch from OpenBSD CVS to fix libXpm vulnerability
- Apply patch from FreeBSD/ports to fix the problem with the radeon
driver switching from graphics to text mode.
You could probably update by doing:
cvs up -dP
cvs up -dP meta-pkgs/xorg x11/xorg-*
But note that updating just one part of pkgsrc can cause failures. It is
always a good idea to update it all at a time, because packages may
include information in other directories.
