This is what happens to me when I ran the xorg-server from freedesktop CVS 
on DragonFly. X server would work and I could see the distinctive X 
background and could move my pointer, but once I started an Xterm, it 
would crash.

But this was on i386 and was not using pkgsrc.

I posted details about it to DragonFly and xorg lists.

I can help you. It is a little confusing because some of the components 
are in CVS and some are in GIT.

Or you can use the many, many tarballs from But that will 
take a long time.

Or please try the packages from pkgsrc-wip (see wip/xorg-server). They 
need work and I need testers.
