It is time to switch the default version of xorg on FreeBSD 9.1 and
later, including CURRENT.
In general this means better support for modern hardware, especially
intel hardware, at the cost of support for some legacy hardware.
The old version will still be around, and be the default for FreeBSD
releases prior to 9.1, it is also possible to get the old version by
setting WITHOUT_NEW_XORG= in /etc/make.conf.
The attached patch will make the switch, and I intend to commit it ASAP
unless something major shows up.  The patch is also available at
