Both - we're not low on electrons. If you have someplace to put them, you
can do that and paste a link.
Another help option is the #dragonflybsd IRC channel on EFNet; if you are
comfortable using IRC, there's a good number of people in that channel,
all of whom are knowledgeable and may be able to help more immediately.
It's usually busiest during daytime hours in Europe.
Not sure it is germane but 'something' in xorg went at least temporarily
pear-shaped on the latest FreeBSD step-ups (7.1 -> 7.2 as well as 8 RC1) and one
other *BSD w/r Intel VGA driver vs VESA autoselection and loading.
Symptom was an i9XX that was previously automagically handled w/o need of a conf
file stalling with 'unable' vs prior art falling back to VESA if all else failed.
Taming it with conf file entries quickly became tedious, and was of no interest
in a constantly-changing workshop of portable storage devices, so I've simply
backleveled until the Xorg community recover their automagicality.
NB: These are changes in the Xorg 'containership' - not the host OS, have been
extent for quite a while now, BUT AFAIK not relevant to other-than i8XX / i9xx
