Thanks a lot for the information.
As Polytropon stated, xorg.conf is generally not needed nowadays. So I
just did a startx and things worked out fine. However, this behaviour is
more Windowish than Unixish. I would like to remember the -configure
option for my own sake.
Thanks again to you and Polytropon.
