Just one other note, If you have been upgrading with portmanager
you should have either /usr/ports/packages/All/xorg-6.8.1.tbz or
/usr/ports/x11/xorg/xorg-6.8.1.tbz which means you can do 
pkg_add /usr/ports/packages/All/xorg-6.8.1.tbz 
or  /usr/ports/x11/xorg/xorg-6.8.1.tbz and quickly recover everything 
instead of rebuilding.
