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.
