Presuming the livecheck mechanism is working correctly, I have now
updated all the x11/xorg* ports _except_ for xorg-server.

I'd still like someone to help me with xorg-server. Touching it
worries me, but there's a boatload of CVEs against our version and
leaving it as is seems like a bad move.

If anyone is willing to help, please do get in touch. Otherwise I'm
going to try to do it on my own.
