I detected that when I comment out the driver line in
"xorg.conf", X crashes no longer.

  Section "Device"                                                                                                 
      Identifier  "Card0"                                                                                    
      # Driver      "intel"                                                
      BusID       "PCI:0:2:0"

As far as I see in the log file, the driver still is loaded.
Of course, as the system crashes immediately, I cannot diff
the log file against the configuration causing the
bad behaviour.

The port "x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel" has been updated two
weeks ago. There must be some relation.

What can I do to diagnose this problem?

Thanks in advance.
