I would recommend that you do this in a step wise fashion. The install image I pointed you to has a basic window manager: twm. After the initial install, configuration of networking and adding a user test the following:
1) login in as user
2) cp /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ~/.xinitrc
3) startx
4) Test mouse/keyboard
5) run glxinto in one of the xterms and see if you have direct rendering
6) less /var/log/Xorg.0.log and look at the configuration. If things did not go well, copy the log and post here.

Once you have a working X windows with 3D graphics, then install your desktop.

Also, the pkgsrc breakage occurred the last couple of weeks for 2017Q2, That is broken. I think 2017Q1 should work.
