relatively urgent question (about X)

For some months I've had increasing troubles with my
4.9/4.10 abruptly crashing. This morning I found my
workhorse server, tao, down and hung up while trying to
fsck /usr. I cleaned everything thoroughly and then
started xdm. The grey screen showed, the mouse was frozen;
after 30 seconds, BOOM. Another crash. After yet
another round of fsck's, I tried startx. To see what
errs might kill the X11 boot. No: same blank grey screen,
same frozen mouse,same OS crash.
I tried /stand/sysinstall to reconfigure X. No luck.
I'm now doing my next stable sup upgrade and am doing
yet another buildworld && buildkernel.
I doubt this will resolve the X Window snafu, tho. So:::
what x11/*XFree* ports do I have to fetch/build/install??
((I'm assuming the reason for the crash was X-related,
but this is only a first-SWAG.) Also, if anybody has had a
similar problem, please let me know.
