As far as I know, DMX was disabled (upstream) due to lack of maintainer. 

Looking at libdmx in source, it hasn't been touched since April 2006.

Looking xserver's, I see it was disabled in February 2007: 
"Disable DMX until it gets ported to the new input API."

To try, maybe update the pkgsrc/x11/modular-xorg-server/Makefile to add

CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --enable-dmx
.include "../../wip/libdmx/"

I think that won't work, but may give you a head start.
