pkg_info | grep xeyes
xeyes-1.1.1         A follow the mouse X demo
pkg_info | grep xorg-server
xorg-server-1.7.7_8,1 X.Org X server and related programs

Works fine here, amd64.

How soon does it crash?
  First mouse movement, program startup, or what?

The behavior I see is:
  mouse is visible
  start typing in xterm and cursor disappears
  xeyes comes up with eyes pointing to where cursor was
  a second or so later the cursor reappears
  move the cursor and eyes follow it
