I tried the same thing about a month ago; I've managed to build
VNC with X.org sources, but the resulting server coredumps
when started. There were a couple of reports about that on
VNC mailing lists, and suggested fixes, none of which worked.
VNC4 builds fine with XFree sources, and works very well. I
have put together a port which should work on FreeBSD 5.x (not
on 4.x), it's at http://www.math.uic.edu/~vladimir/vnc4.tar.gz
