FreeBSD has been using XFree86 up through 4.10 and 5.2; I believe the project
will switch to using the X.org version by default for 5.3 and future releases.
XFree86 will be supported via ports.
Someone closer to the matter than I just posted a suggested change to the
freebsd-docs mailing list with more details, so answers to your question are
being actively considered now. :-)
