After seeing additional posts to this thread some seven hours later,
I decided to look at the GENERIC kernel config file that came with
my 9.3-STABLE upgrade.  The GENERIC kernel config file (i386) is
dated 10/7/2014 (the date of my upgrade) and the RCS/SCCS $Id$ line
in that file looks like this:

   $FreeBSD: stable/9/sys/i386/conf/GENERIC 271233 2014-09-07 18:42:45Z markj $

But, but, this GENERIC kernel config file does _NOT_ contain the
string "vt" ANYWHERE!!!  So how can the above statement:

   "GENERIC now contains both sc and vt"

possibly be true?  I am still confused, but I would like to be able
to exit my Xorg sessions cleanly (whether the "right" way using shell
built-in "exec" or the "wrong" way by killing the window manager).  :-)

Oh, and BTW, I obtained the O/S source files using this command:

   # svn co svn:// src

on 10/7/2014.  Thanks again.
