I installed NetBSD 7.0.2 + patch i386 and pkgsrc2017Q3 for i386,
I had problems with the pkgin package manager, to install an Xfce4 desktop.
I went into "mode" compilation and manually compile Xfce4,
with the manager xf86-video-vesa, I have a desktop that appears but it's not very user-friendly,
trying to install xf86-video-ati I meet this error that I can not get around.
here is my output
The monolithic xorg includes the xf86-video-ati driver - no to to redundantly install the modular driver.

You should be able to startx, with 3D acceleration, after successful installation of the image I pointed to above. And you should not need an xorg.conf.
