X, DRI, and xkbcomp (any keypress changes screen resolution)

DRI sounded like a good idea. Step one, upgrade system to -STABLE went
fine. Step two, portupgrade -RN XFree86... did not. It ended up with X
running but any keypress causes it to cycle to the next screen
resolution. (There were a couple of messages about this on the mailing
list, but no resolution.)
It seems to be xkbcomp. When X starts, it shows a bunch of error
messages like this:
expected keysym, got XF86_Switch_VT_1: line 8 of xfree86
expected keysym, got XF86_Switch_VT_2: line 11 of xfree86
The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
> Warning: Multiple interpretations of "NoSymbol+AnyOfOrNone(all)"
> Using last definition for duplicate fields
If I rename the /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/compat directory so xkbcomp can't
find it, X starts up and runs almost normally, although it gives an
xkbcomp warning (and some keystrokes no longer work).
I've tried reinstalling XFree86-clients-4.3.0_2, and it just reinstalls
the same stuff in the xkb directory.
Any ideas on fixing this?
