I just upgraded Xorg to 7.2 and what I did was reinstalling a fresh
minimal (just the base system) FreeBSD, updating my ports (portsnap)
and then 'make' Xorg.
It took me quite some time though, but if you have a fast internet
connection that'll be no problem.
By the way, I didn't lost any data as I'd created separate partitions
for important directories.
