I had a lot of difficulty when I installed 5.3, even though I have been
configuring X since FreeBSD 2.1.5.  The tools seem to have taken a step
backwards with xorg.  xorgcfg -textmode seems to result in a bad
configuration file, and in graphical mode, it is very obscure, and does
not show scroll bars on list boxes and the like.

Having to run Knoppix (which gets it right without asking any questions
at all) isn't a very satisfying solution.
