This bit is fixed (Joerg, if you still want my logs I'll send them to
you).  The problem seems to be I followed the advice on the wiki
which advised the following bootstrap line
   # ./bootstrap --pkgdbdir /var/db/pkgsrc --prefix /usr/pkg

It turns out this pkgdbdir seems to conflict with Joerg's and
drhodus's packages.  Using /var/db/pkg (having nuked existing
pkg install) fixed it.  Should the wiki be fixed?

However, I still get a segfault

using the radeon driver, though not with vesa driver, as I described
below.  I tried replacing radeon_drv.o with the one from my Linux
install (which used to work) and it still segfaults.  vesa works.  If
I start X without any config file, it uses vesa.  This is annoying
(eg, no Xvideo extension, etc).
