The sources are in the X11 tree which comes on the CDROM.   If you
want to grab a second copy of the sources and compile them again
(which should result in IDENTICAL binaries) do this (using xpm as
an example:

   $ cd /usr/ports/graphics/xpm
   $ make NO_IGNORE=YES

But why?  If you want to build from sources build from the supplied
X11 sources and the files you mention will be compiled along with
everything else.
