If you are using X.org, it's probably better to set the following in
PREFER_PKGSRC= MesaLib glu
By my reading of pkgsrc/x11/xorg-libs/Makefile, xorg-libs already pulls
in the pkgsrc versions of expat, freetype2, and fontconfig, so it's not
necessary to list them. For what it's worth, I personally use:
PREFER_NATIVE= getopt skey tcp_wrappers
so that all dependencies are satisfied through pkgsrc, and I have fewer
problems with updating packages.
What to do when not using the native XFree86 is still guesswork as we
don't have that many users experiementing with using pkgsrc X11
distributions and providing feedback on what works and what doesn't.
