Brief status update, possibly to be opened as a new issue / new issues if I find
anything more:

X (the server) dies on signal 11 if /tmp/.tX0-lock and/or /tmp/.X0-lock exist. 
This is probably not the intended behavior, since IIRC previous versions would
complain about locks.

Right now I can happily move the cursor around on a checkerboard screen by
running the X or Xorg link, but using startx (requires the x11/xinit package) or
gdm results in a black screen that persists after the server dies.  I don't get
it -- it could be that I normally use Gnome and that could be turning up trouble
with, say, libXrandr, but trying it under accounts that should definitely just
be giving me twm turn up the same problem.  I'll be doing some more tracing and
seeing if I can get to the bottom of that.

FWIW, I did confirm that my clients aren't broken and run properly to a
different display.
