Hello to all

If this is a faq please direct me to it.

I believe to have my XF86Config configured correctly but everytime I type
startx I get a

       Config Error /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config:205
          Driver   "SVGA"

not a recognized section name

Fatal server error:
Child error writing to pipe (Broken pipe)

xinit:  No such file or directory (errno 2):  unexpected signal 13

I do have a symbolic link from X to XF86.

1. Upgrading to 4.6.2...X11 config in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11 or /etc/X11?

During the next week, I plan to upgrade my machine to 4.6.2.  When I
installed the installation of X11 that I have now, I built it from
source with the ports tree, and it put the config files in the normal
location /usr/X11R6/lib/X11.
        However, I'm aware that in the past, FreeBSD has packaged the
X configs to go into /etc/X11, and I also remember that back when I was
running 4.4 on a different machine, the port asked you before the build
which of the two locations you'd like your X configs to go to.
        What I'm wondering is this:  If I do the upgrade, and have it
upgrade my X-Window installation, is it going to be smart enough to see
which place to look for my configuration?  I like freedom of choice with
things like this, but I hope the package tools are keeping all this
freedom in mind at upgrade time.

Anybody done the upgrade already on a machine with the configs in /usr?
