It looks like this was a step in the WRONG direction. Having removed
XORG, it won't install. It appears that xorg requires xorg-drivers
(understandable), and xorg-drivers requires xf86-video-via (OK), and
xf86-video-via requires a PCI Video Card to be installed.

make clean install -k in x11-drivers/xorg-drivers will make
xorg-drivers install, but make clean install -k in x11/xorg won't
install because xf86-video-via is ignored.

Anyone have another suggestion? At this point, I need to get X
installed so I can even consider a window manager.
