Either eat the cost and grab the distfiles, or write your own port
update to go (back) to using XFree86 4.4.

When I committed the update to use xorg, it added a pile of new hardware
support that XFree86 4.3 didn't have, which was why I felt it was
justified.  Now, XFree86 4.4 users could just use that release.
