I managed to get things working again after several days of trying
a number of things including portupgrade -f -a (which I needed to
do anyway...).

I'm not sure this is a real fix, but X now works after I used
xorgconfig to generat an /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

startx works like a charm.  The startup was perhaps five seconds
slower than I'm accustomed.  Otherwise, ctl-alt-F1 gets me to a
console and ctl-alf-F9 takes me back to X.

Back to normal.

Before using xorgconfig, X -configure generated an xorg.conf that
gave me a black screen from which only a reboot could recover.

Same black screen happened here.  Load increases until the box
either hangs completely or reboots, or I quickly log in remotely
and reboot.

Same thing happened to me.

Try using xorgconfig's result.

There are some niceties about the video that I'm lacking, but I
don't do those anyway.
