Hi all,

I installed 9-RELEASE on an SDD.  Hadn't done one since 6.2 so the new 
install process was... different.

Was surprised not to have the x-user type install scenario.  Since the 
handbook install doc says to use sysinstall for ports and packages, I 
started up sysinstall and told it to install xorg-server, firefox, 
thunderbird for starters.  It claimed it installed, and pkg_info says 
there's a boatload of stuff installed, but I can't find an X11 directory 
or executables anywhere.  Also can't find any distfiles.  Previous X 
installs started up the server and tuned it, but nothing happened in 
that regard either.
