All I wanted to know is do you still have to compile xorg?


Nope, haven't had to do that since NetBSD 4.0, maybe even earlier than that. You certainly can, but there's no need to. Desktop environments however may be a different story especially obscure ones that may not be compiled or are compiled without features you want. GNOME and KDE are obviously compiled and packaged up as are most others, but there may be some that aren't.
