Xorg crashes while loading XFCE4

I had 'xfce4' working perfectly under Xorg-6.9; however, after
updating to version 7.2, I cannot get the windows manager loaded.
I moved the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and build a new one using "Xorg
--configure". I was then able to at least begin loading the program
before it crashed. I reinstalled the entire 'xorg' meta port as well
as the 'xfce4' meta port. I used an updated ports tree for this task.
Unfortunately, I still cannot get this to load.
I have posted a copy of the '/var/log/Xorg.0.log' file at:
I also have a copy of the script I created when typing in 'startx'
There is one interesting point however. I noticed this error message:
** (xfce-mcs-manager:82803): WARNING **: display_plugin: Unable to configure display resolution
Failed to run gnome-keyring-daemon: Failed to execute child process "gnome-keyring-daemon" (No such file or directory)
** (xfwm4:82807): WARNING **: The display does not support the XComposite extension.
** (xfwm4:82807): WARNING **: Compositing manager disabled.
(xfwm4:82807): Gdk-WARNING **: shmget failed: error 12 (Cannot allocate memory)
Fatal server error:
Caught signal 10. Server aborting
xinit: connection to X server lost.
The application 'xfwm4' lost its connection to the display :0.0;
most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed
I cannot find out what the 'gnome-keyring-daemon' is or how to get it
installed. I am not even sure if that is the problem.
