The latest xorg runs fine on 6.2.  Well, 6.2-STABLE here:

FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE #0: Wed Oct 10 12:48:47 MDT 2007

This system was upgraded with mergebase, and I don't have any settings 
for X11BASE in make.conf.

If you really want, portdowngrade can retrieve earlier versions of 
ports.  For xorg, that way lies madness.  Or maybe it's over there->.
