I see no newer version of xxxterm although there is one on the snapshots page of the mirror i use;
To confirm the existence of this (newer than -release...) xxxterm package, one can check manually:
$ ftp -a

So sepuku, you need to provide us the following information:
  1. Did you install the August 17 snapshot over 4.9-stable or did you upgrade from 4.9-stable to this snapshot?
  2. The ftp(1) session above shows that PKG_PATH needs to be modified to the following:

    $ export

    Provide us the output of the following:

    $ echo $PKG_PATH
I did *not* ran sysmerge and i don't intend to.
Might I remind you that we are spending significant time trying to figure out what you have done (amidst contradictory information...) in order to help you. I can assure you each of us has other things to do. Patience & clarity from your side will go a long way towards finding a solution.
