I've built the kernal and included the creator device.
I'm running 5.3 and I am currently trying to install the 6.8.1 port.
I don't think I've done syscons yet. I'll work on getting that done. I 
just notice that when I run xorgconfig that none of the sun cards are in 
the card database. That is why I was curious if I needed to compile the 
source manually.

I've searched the list and didn't find a whole lot on X.
