	I have X running well here. I don't know if this will help you, but here is
the order I built things in.

1   -  libtool
2   -  libiconv
3   -  gettext
4   -  gmake
5   -  expat
6   -  imake-4		*Note - Dragonfly override here
7   -  freetype2
8   -  fontconfig
9   -  XFree86-4-libraries	*Note - Dragonfly override
10  -  Xft
11  -  dri
12  -  XFree86-4    (the Meta port)

	As I think you've mentioned in another post you have already seen the 
"such and such lib" not found failure. I saw this about 5-6 times with ports
installed after XFree86-4 when looking for libs in /usrX11R6/lib instead of
/usr/local/lib. In order to just move forward I made symlinks. I would
expect this to pop up a lot with a KDE build. I'm not going to try KDE until
it stabilizes with 3.2. The only real X related problem I've had is I cannot
get the nvidia-driver to build but I'm also not going to worry about it
either. Hope this helps, and best of luck to you with building X.   :)
