<snip useful upgrade info>

I know this post was from a few weeks ago, but I just wanted to thank you 
profusely for this info. After considering that XFree86 will no longer be the 
default X server in FreeBSD soon, and that many distros are also switching, 
in addition to the fact that XFree86 doesn't recognize my video card no 
matter what I did, I finally took the plunge and installed X.org. Thanks to 
your explicit instructions, so far it's running without a hitch (and now I 
can also get 1600X1200 resolution, a necessary thing on my 21" monitor). I 
had considered just yanking XFree and installing X.org, but I'm pleased to 
know a better method that allows portupgrade to get the new dependencies
