Log of the server failing to start

The package message directs users to use a Modules section. 

Attempting to use a Modules section causes the server to not start. 

From the log: 

[   808.068] (==) Using config directory: "/usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d"
[   808.068] (==) Using system config directory "/usr/local/share/X11/xorg.conf.d"
[   808.068] Parse error on line 1 of section Modules in file /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/modules.conf
	"Modules" is not a valid section name.
[   808.068] (EE) Problem parsing the config file
[   808.068] (EE) Error parsing the config file

After working around the problem: 

----

% pkg query %M dejavu
On install:
Make sure that the freetype module is loaded.  If it is not, add the following
line to the "Modules" section of your X Windows configuration file:

        Load "freetype"

Add the following line to the "Files" section of X Windows configuration file:

        FontPath "/usr/local/share/fonts/dejavu/"

Note: your X Windows configuration file is typically /etc/X11/XF86Config
if you are using XFree86, and /etc/X11/xorg.conf if you are using X.Org.
