What do you mean by "Everything is okay"?

It looks like you're trying to have XFree86 generate a clean XF86Config
for you. If that's the case, copy it to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11. While
/etc/X11 exists on FreeBSD, it's not the preferred location. I don't
know if X will even look there for it.
In order to get any helpful advice, you'll have to provide more
information. Give us the entire contents of your XF86Config (and
triple-check that its the one that XFree86 is using!) as well as the
full output of your XFree86 log which you should find at
