macppc, shark, sparc & sparc64 platforms has been set to Xorg.
all other platforms still use XFree86 for now.

what does this mean for you?  if you has set MKXORG=yes and
MKX11=no to get native xorg up to now, you need to switch
back to MKX11=yes.

i plan to submit this for netbsd-5 shortly, switching the
default X11 there for the above platforms as well.

Not for sparc please. First, because we still don't have all the old sbus video drivers in Xorg, second because it ( like XFree86 ) requires wscons which still isn't the default here ( mostly because nobody with the right hw can be arsed to write wsdisplay drivers )

have fun
