I know you are talking about 2.7, but some people contemplating to 
switch from xfree to xorg may find this useful.

I have gnome 2.6 working perfectly fine with Xorg for almost a month 
now. Everything runs smoothly, I just have to run pkgdb -F each time 
after cvsup (that is until the xorg vs. xfree issue in ports is solved) 
to fix few dependencies. There was even noticeable increase in 
responsiveness of the interface and the box itself.
