The new version will still work with libevent-1.4.14b_2 installed, but
the FreeBSD tor-devel port has been changed to link Tor against
libevent-2.0.10 now that it has been released, and if you build Tor
with both versions of libevent installed, Tor will be compiled with the
include files from libevent 2 and linked to libevent 1, which won't

To install the tor-devel port,
* uninstall libevent-1.4.14b_2 temporarily (the portupgrade tools
  should include something that will create a 'backup' package of a
  port while uninstalling it),
* install the tor-devel port,
* then reinstall libevent-1.4.14b_2 (preferably from your package).
