Seems that the "-p" option for portupgrade did it...

We use linux libraries and as to GPL we should have sources together
with binaries. It was agreed that the best be can do -- to download
sources to those servers which have binary distfiles to
distribute. Thus those sources are downloading only when
PACKAGE_BUIULDING=YES is defined -- mainly for the FreeBSD package
building cluster.

So when a standard user installs linux-xorg-libs from port or from
package (s)he doesn't get the sources.

Fedora Core 4 has many xorg-libraries splitted functionally, but has
only one big file for the sources. :-(

To avoid the sources fetching you may apply the next patch to
--- bsd.linux-rpm.mk.orig Fri Jun 30 15:44:14 2006
+++ bsd.linux-rpm.mk Fri Jun 30 15:45:30 2006
@@ -86,12 +86,6 @@

-. if defined(PACKAGE_BUILDING)
-. endif


But you should read GPL first. ;-)
