Nope.  /etc/X11/xorg.conf is a file that you must have created.
Did you build it by hand, using "X -configure" or some other way?

BTW, 'SMP' and 'APIC_IO' should be in your kernel config file, not
/etc/make.conf - the kernel should use COPTFLAGS, not CFLAGS in any case.

The attachments were OK but you missed /var/log/Xorg.0.log - that's
the file that should have any error messages from Xorg.
