X11 no longer works on Mountain Lion

Hi all,

I recently upgraded my computer from Lion to Mountain Lion. 

I had xorg-server installed and it worked in Lion. I dutifully uninstalled all my macports ports and reinstalled xorg-server (and wine). But now X11 will crash on launch and continually try to relaunch but it never actually launches without crashing. I tried uninstalling xinit and xorg-server and reinstalling them. I re-ran:

launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.macports.startx.plist

and logged out and logged back in. But that did not help either. I also tried installing xorg-server-devel instead. 

How can I get X11 running in Mountain Lion with Macports?
