xorg-kbproto became obsolete on August 29, 2018 [1] and was deleted March 10, 2020 [2]. If you still have it installed and active, you must not have updated your ports at any time between those dates. We try to leave upgrade paths in place for about one year, so it is highly recommended that you upgrade your ports at least once a year.

You can uninstall xorg-kbproto.

sudo port -f uninstall xorg-kbproto
