X not working after upgrade to 3.4

1) system is i386

2) I did

     # make buildworld && make buildkernel && make installkernel
       && make installworld && make upgrade

     (and then reboot)

and after the X problems I tried

     # pkgin update
     # pkgn full-upgrade


     # cd /usr/pkgsrc/meta-pkgs/modular-xorg
     # bmake replace

     (and then reconfigure X)

Most packages are installed with pkgsrc, some with pkgin.

Is that still the case based on the above?  "Advanced Vector 
Extensions"?  I shouldn't think the cpu in this ThinkPad x60 will have that.

Can I do that with a single command?  Doing it manually is probably more 
bother than reinstalling DragonFly completely (which I'm prepared to do).

Best wishes
