I have same problem.

I provided some fixes and the main fixes in startx script should all be 
fixed upstream and available in latest (or recent) xinit source tarball.

pkgsrc also needs to be configured with:

CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --with-xinit=${PREFIX}/bin/xinit

(I think that is it, my laptop where I have same problem is turned off.)

Package freeze is starting or has started -- so need to okay this.

I have added pkgsrc-users to this email.
