Same here, Lenovo R61i and R500 work horses. :-)

No, because technically _all_ software is installed via pkg.
If you "make install", a package is generated, and it's
installed in the same way pkg does it (including registration
in the system's installed package database).

Did you maybe "pkg lock" that package, so it didn't get updated?

Related to the DRM kernel modules, verify the following measures
have been taken:

1. installed from ports

	# cd /usr/ports/graphics/drm-kmod
	# make
	# make install

2. setting in /etc/rc.conf


3. user in "video" group

	# pw groupmod video -M <username>

4. no xorg.conf
