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