Default xorgcfg command not found

I'm finally making some progress in installing and even got the X11 initial screen working , but... the next thing I should do (following FreeBSD 6 Unleashed-book, though I installed FreeBSD 7) is
# xorgcfg -textmode
what I get there is
xorgfcfg command not found
I got real brave and went for xorgconfig (Handbook 5.4.2) instead, though it did say:
"...is a console utility that is less user friendly, but it may work in situations where the other tools do not."
I followed all steps as good as I could (do know horizontal and vertical monitor numbers, but no idea of videocard) and ended up being denied permission to access the newly made file.

I wouldn't mind doing the install again, but I don't know how to get past that
xorgfcfg command not found
without having to deal with the "less user friendly"-option (where I also have to "guess" a number for video card memory.
