A couple of questions about 7.0-RELEASE and X11

I have just installed the new 7.0-RELEASE shown on the www.freebsd.org home
page  ( still confused as to whether this is CURRENT or STABLE ) and trying
to get X working.

It doesn't appear to have xorgcfg in it anywhere? Has this handy program
been abandoned?

I'm running it on an old SAMTRON 5Ei monitor of unknown HorizontalSync and
VerticalSync patterns, and the card type is reported as S3. 

There are a couple of ways to configure the xorg.conf file available - but
none seem to be producing any useable results.

The handbook is clear and concise - but none of it works.


I did a clean install of 7.0 and put X on at the time. But even the manual
talks about xorgcfg - but its no where to be found? Should it be there? Or
has it been discontinued?
