     I'm not sure about this as I haven't been following X that
closely.  But, I believe there are some differences in video cards
supported by the two of them (i.e. XFree86 may support some older video
cards not supported by Xorg and Xorg may support some newer video cards
not supported by XFree86).

     If you're going to use Xorg, then there is no point in building
x11 using (unless you're looking to exercise your hardware).
