Looks like it's almost there, but my X libraries need some help now.
Here is my ./configure output using the current subversion checkout:

Checking for environment: Determined build machine: freebsd.x86,
target machine: freebsd.x86, OK.
Checking for kBuild: found, OK.
Checking for gcc: found version 4.2.1, OK.
Checking for as86: found version 0.16.17, OK.
Checking for bcc: found version 0.16.17, OK.
Checking for iasl: found version 20070320, OK.
Checking for xslt: found, OK.
Checking for pthread: found, OK.
Checking for xalan: found version 1.10.0, OK.
Checking for xerces: found version 2.7.0, OK.
Checking for libIDL: found version 0.8.8, OK.
Checking for zlib: found version 1.2.3, OK.
Checking for SDL: found version 1.2.11, OK.
Checking for X libraries:
  Xlibs not found at -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib64 -lXext -lX11
or Xlibs headers not found
  Check the file configure.log for detailed error information.

Full configure log is available at: http://www.datahead.org/configure.log

The FreeBSD ports infrastructure locates all X-related files under
/usr/local now (previously under /usr/X11R6) except for
/etc/X11/xorg.conf (at least I think that's the only one).  So, the
file that the configure log says it can't find is located at
/usr/local/include/X11/Xlib.h.

Hope that helps.  I'll try and stay connected to IRC too if you want
to chat more interactively about this.

Thanks,
Matt
