I wanted to thank everybody who helped me. I added those ports, and that 
fixed the problem I had before. So, I was able to issue:
X -configure
and obtain file. I checked the configuration and found that 
the hardware was recognized without errors. The pathes were changed 
to /usr/local accordingly.

But when I issue:
X -config /root/

the X server doesn't start; it fails with the message:

Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'

I checked and found that the pathes to appropriate fonts are 
listed there, namely:


I checked all the directories; they exist, and their contents exist. I 
tried mkfontdir in each of them, but it changed nothing.

Maybe, you could advise me what I need to do in order to resolve it, apart 
from rebuilding the whole thing. Thank you very much in advance!
