Well, after not having any luck with Xorg after a fresh install
of 7. I decided to try a more recent cvsup of the ports tree and
try again. After issuing:
cvsup -g -L 2 ports-supfile && portsdb -uU && pkgdb -F

And following up with a portupgrade -a -e -f -y

Portupgrade finished without error. So I elected to bounce the
box and issue "startx" after logging in. Good news. No more
Xorg dumping core. Bad news. Xorg exits before completeting
with the following error:
Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'

The man page provided no help. Google provided no cure.
Yahoo provided no cure. I tried "make uninstall" of every
"misc" font file I could imagine. Then make installing all of
them. But still no joy. :(

Please help.

Thank you.
