FWIW: lots more of things likee theses in /var/log/debug.log:

Jun 5 00:04:39 tao2 su: NSSWITCH(nss_method_lookup): nis, group_compat,
endgrent, not found

But in /etc/make.conf is NO_NIS=YES; so I don't no where the nis
yelps are coming from.... any ideas?? Also, lot of -aP packages
cming over via portupgrade.

Also I /usr is

X11R6 -> /usr/local/

It's gone from working to (!working) and back. And back... . HM.
this is interesting, aabout kdm-bin in messages and gdm also:

Any X11/GUI type wizards know what this means? This is exactly
what happened when I trried to lanuch GGUI stuff: couldn't deal
with the display. I'm stumped.
