You could probably use the 9.1 packages. Just remove packages with removepkg and install the XFree with installpkg. If I remember correctly, the switch to occurred fairly late in the development of 10 so the 9.1 packages are probably compatible. Of course there is always compiling XFree86 yourself as well.
