My current would also reboot when doing xorgcfg (after I did a clean
install of current and ports). No entries in the logfiles did indicate
what the reason was.

I ended up copying an old xorg.conf and modified the file to
accomodate xorg's new /usr/local location. After that X started fine.


When lenity and cruelty play for a kingdom,
the gentlest gamester is the soonest winner.
