All things considered, I think it'd be much more worth your while to
determine the reason for your XFree86 4.x problems. When you tried to
install X, did you work from an updated ports tree?

Also note that 5.2 is due out next month. There's always the chance that,
if your problems are actually related to bugs, that they will be fixed in
the next release.
