As far as I know, is still the normal location  
for port updates to come from. Mine says, but only  
because I manually changed it because someone on this list said I  
should. But then someone else told me I shouldn't have done it.  
That's why I asked if you had manually edited the file.

The fact that it's trying to install XFree86 suggests that you do not  
have all of Apple's X11 installed. I recommend you install Apple's  
X11 instead of building XFree86. Look in /Library/Receipts and see if  
you have both X11User.pkg and X11SDK.pkg. If you do not have  
X11User.pkg, install it from your Mac OS X CD or DVD. If you do not  
have X11SDK.pkg, install it from the Xcode CD or the Xcode download
