Many ppl have seen this issue. It's often a part of getting
Xorg setup with new hardware. But in order for anyone to
provide you with some help. You're going to need to help
them, so they can help you. :-)
IOW you haven't given us enough information.
The following information would help greatly:
the output of uname -a
the output of your Xorg.0.log
and maybe the output of svn info /usr/ports
