No need for that.  You said doesn't have the issue and does, so it was introduced somewhere between and

That means it was something between:
git commits cff12936275db2f71f6d24f9ea0985a0d14af454 and e572bcc7f4236b7e0f23ab762f225b3bce37db59

If you are not comfortable building from a git checkout, I suggest you stay at the checkout and bisect between those to git commits by editing the git.branch line of the Portfile to figure out what commit introduced the issue.

You can do something like:

git clone ssh://git.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/xserver.git
cd xserver
git bisect start
git bisect bad e572bcc7f4236b7e0f23ab762f225b3bce37db59
git bisect good cff12936275db2f71f6d24f9ea0985a0d14af454

It will then report something like this:

Bisecting: 169 revisions left to test after this (roughly 8 steps)
[35dc7c75150733dbcef8a18b6796f49a7c48ebee] Merge branch 'modesetting-import' into master

So try 35dc7c75150733dbcef8a18b6796f49a7c48ebee and then run 'git bisect good' or 'git bisect bad' as appropriate and try the next one until you've determined what commit introduced the problem.
