I followed the instructions here:

and used freebsd-base-graphics for both buildword and buildkernel. I'm not too
clear on just what that means for any future updates, though. I have been
hoping for the past year or more that the patches/changes included in
freebsd-base-graphics would get integrated into the base. I really don't know
if that's happened or planned to be done. Been kinda frustrating.
