I was wondering about that. Can I do that although I've completed the
instructions for the X.org update? That is, I've already run that script
they mention at the end and /usr/X11R6 is now a symlink to /usr/local.
Also, I did a pkg_info | grep xorg and it looks like everything was upgraded
to 7.3 ok.
At any rate, here's what the log file said when X.org tried to load.
