So you're telling me that I have to wait until AFTER FreeBSD 5.3-Release
to get X.org 6.8.0?

Just get the cvs of 6.8.0 or cvsup it from freedesktops cvsup server. I've
been running it in CURRENT for over a month and it works great. No hacking
necessary. It hasn't crashed on me once. I'm impressed.
