DPorts: Libreoffice, XFce4, Xorg & Firefox

For what it's worth, I was trying out X11 forwarding with a dports-built
xorg and could not get xauth to be set correctly by ssh when connecting.
 This is after changing the matching config files, but I noticed that
'strings `which xauth` | grep pkg' still returned /usr/pkg/bin/xauth, so
there may be some built-in component that's making assumptions.

Or it could be me, unlucky; I only have the one computer to test on.
