OK. Maybe a bit more information would help.

 What do you get from 'pciconf -lv'? Can you start Xorg without trying
to create a config file? Most systems today will start out of the box
and the configuration generator has been know to lock up. What about
make.conf? Do you have WITH_NEW_XORG in it or any other options tied
to video or Xorg?
