It also errors out if both Apple X11 and X11SDK are present. (And the 
usage of ${prefix} in those checks in the XFree86 portfile seems to be 
wrong, BTW. Not to mention quartz-wm is in /usr/bin these days, not 
${x11prefix}/bin.) So it's impossible to install AfterStep with X11 

% sudo port -v install AfterStep
--->  Fetching XFree86
Error: Target org.macports.fetch returned:

                     You have an Apple X11SDK installation already.
                         MacPorts will not overwrite it.

                     If you wish to use Apple X11,
                         install it from your Mac OS X install disc.

                     If you really want to use XFree86 instead,
                         please move it aside first :

                             sudo mv /usr/X11R6 /usr/X11R6.apple
