Hello everyone.  It seems that there were two reported
problems with the X.org-7.0.tar.bz2 dfport override that
was published on ftp.fortunaty.net.  The two problems were
that True Type font rendering and mousewheel support stopped

The fix for the mousewheel is trivial in that all that is
required is to make bsd_mouse.c aware of __DragonFly__.
As for TTF, they seem to be calling that the ``X-True-Type
extension'' now instead of the ``freetype module.''  Changing
your X11 configuration file to load "xtt" instead of "freetype"
will get that working.

I've put the updated port here:


I've tested it and it builds and installs fine and works with
my nvidia hardware.  No problems running OpenGL.
