Thanks for letting me know!
I switched back from modular Xorg to native on NetBSD 7 and HEAD after being
unable to startx (modular) because it couldn't find display.
Also, NetBSD-current amd64 (6.99.44) USB-stick installation became corrupted,
apparently bad sectors on the USB stick (overstressed?)
Maybe native xorg is better integrated with NetBSD?
Now NetBSD-current amd64 (7.99.1) seems functional albeit inelegant. Native
Xorg starts but mouse is dead; I use surrogate mouse (mousekeys) from xkbset.
I even have (Mozilla) Seamonkey working albeit somewhat crash-prone.
But good enough to get on to other things on my agenda relating to FreeBSD,
Haiku and Linux toolchains which take higher priority now after excessive
