Thanks for the info Mark, however I do know what script does and why
one might use it (I've used it for years for just that, and I'm not
even trying to use it here).

What I was asking about (please re-read my subject line) was the
xorg-upgrade command itself. Where is it located? I can't find it
anywhere on any of my 10 FreeBSD systems (and I know it used to exist
because I have used it in the past).
