Yes, it can be done.  Note that xorg is a package and has to be
installed like any other package.  If you already have it installed
and don't want to rebuild it, use pkg_tarup to create .tgz files and
use the pkg_comp facilities to install those binaries before doing the
build.  (Also, make sure your mk.conf specifying xorg is copied to the
build area, and that you delete the x*.tgz files from the distribution
sets to be installed.)
