When installing most font ports and packages, the postinstall displays instructions on configuring X11 to use the new ports.  They all still refer to XF86Config even though 5.3 has switched to X.org.  The instructions should probably be updated to mention both xorg.conf, and XF86Config in case some users still choose to use it.
Install webfonts or urwfonts.  Probably most others have the same glitch.
Substitute xorg.conf for XF86Config.  Note that the Xorg server doesn't necessarily need a config file, but if you have one, it's called xorg.conf.
