Upgrade from xfree86 to xorg

I would like to move from xfree86 to xorg but I can't find any good description how to install xorg ... INSTALL and BUILD aren't enough for me, does someone have such description?

Of course, Build it, then install it:-P

Ok ok, in all seriousness. The Xorg site has a lot of documentation dealing with building/install xorg-x11. That would be a good place to start looking.
