I had the same problem last night. I just got done installing 1.10.1 
yesterday and I checked out the latest pkgsrc sources. I set X11_TYPE to 
modular in my /usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf file.

Should I try installing from packages, or should I wait until this is 
patched? I was afraid of installing from packages becuase the versions 
might be different. It sems that I already have a bunch of 
packages installed as part of the build routine.

To give you an idea of how far the build went, I'll past some of the 
output of 'pkg_info -Ia':
