I'm slightly confused here.  Will removing the xorg-6.9 package also
remove that xorg-server-6.9 or should that be done with portupgrade in
the order I mentioned, doing it before adding mouse, vid or keyboard
driver?  (I'll have the answer for myself, but not till tonight or
tomorrow when I try my latest and greatest plan.)

ARGH--never mind the above part.  I just reread the latest wiki
instructions and it's perfectly clear that upgrading xorg-server-6.9 is
a separate step.  My apologies.
