Getting X11 to run on virtualbox from a FreeBSD 9.0 CD
installation is pretty much a nightmare. Is there something
about it in the users handbook? A wiki page about setting up
X11 on FreeBSD would do it too. Perhaps we should write one.

Aha! I guess I just keep doing things the old way then,
the package browser was still very nice but I guess what
is really missing is documentation. How is someone new
to FreeBSD supposed to know what packages are available
and how to install them?
