Including the log output, it there is any, might be a good idea.

Personally, I like 'portmanager' for fixing problems like this. Since
you gave no indication of what the problem might be, you could try this
for starters. Rebuild the xorg-7.4_2 meta port. Be sure to update you
ports tree first, then run:

portmanager x11/xorg -p -y -l

If X still won't start, you may have to rebuild your window manager as

If you could only get that wonderful feeling of
accomplishment without having to accomplish anything.
