You can try to set X11_TYPE=modular and setup X server from pkgsrc

or install X server and libraries from FreeBSD.

On Linux(Debian) I personally use Debian's X server but use
X11_TYPE=modular for building X clients from pkgsrc.

X11_TYPE=native on platforms other than NetBSD
causes lots of pkgsrc failures.

On the other hand native X server may work better for your platform
than modular xorg from pkgsrc (better patched/adapted, better support
for closed-source binary drivers etc.).
