modular xorg has packages that conflict with xorg-derived supplementary
packages for in-tree X.  So otpions are:

  pkg_chk to save needed packages, trim  to what you want
  delete all package (empty out /usr/pkg, /var/db/pkg to be sure)
  set X11_TYPE=modular
  build packages you want


  set X11_TYPE=modular

  mark packages built with x11-links as 'rebuild' with pkg_admin (see
  pkg_rolling-replace man page examples section for the commands to do

  start 'pkg_rolling-replace -uv'

  when it fails with a conflict in libXfoo vs Xfoo or some such, use
  'make replace OLDNAME=oldpkg'.  Note that this will put your packages
  in an inconsistent state because the shlib major versions change.

  restart pkg_rolling-replace -uv each time

The second is harder, but leaves you with more functionality in the
intermediate time.  I've done it on several systems (netbsd 4 and
current, i386).
