Actually X will search for xorg.conf in a very long list of places, all spelled out in the xorg.conf(5) man page. Putting it in /etc/X11/xorg.conf is pretty usual, even though the usual hier(7) rules would lead you to expect it to live in /usr/X11R6/etc/X11/xorg.conf or /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xorg.conf -- all of which are on the list of places for X to look for the file, and it's just a matter of taste which one of the available locations you choose.
