I guess the best idea would be to have a look at
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/x11.html
and try how far you get on your own.
Also you should save your old XF86Config somewhere. It's syntax
has changed from XFree86-3 to XFree86-4, but probably you will be
able to recognize most important settings.

Either via /usr/ports/x11/XFree86-4 or pkg_add -r XFree86-4
or /stand/sysinstall --> post install configurations

Good Luck,
