As i said the packages worked for me. Blow away the xfce and xorg ports

the xorg and xfce packages.

It looks like this was a step in the WRONG direction. Having removed
XORG, it won't install. It appears that xorg requires xorg-drivers
(understandable), and xorg-drivers requires xf86-video-via (OK), and
xf86-video-via requires a PCI Video Card to be installed.

make clean install -k in x11-drivers/xorg-drivers will make
xorg-drivers install, but make clean install -k in x11/xorg won't
install because xf86-video-via is ignored.

That -k option to make is unnecessary and possibly bad. Stop using it for now.

cd /usr/ports/x11/xorg
make clean
make config-recursive
(choose configuration for everything)
make install

Anyone have another suggestion? At this point, I need to get X
installed so I can even consider a window manager.

Instead of waiting for the ports to build, install the package:

pkg_add -r xorg
