As far as I know it is necessary that there is no running X on the system when you install Xorg. I did it a few weeks ago when I made a fresh install of NetBSD 4.0.1 on my laptop (i386). When I had to choose the installation sets, I ignored the x-sets. After the installation of the base-system I put

in /etc/mk.conf and followed the Howto you have mentioned. It all went fine and xorg worked as it should.
