I have upgraded to 8.0-RC1 (from 7.2-STABLE) on my MacBook 4,1. I did
so by checking out stable/8 under /usr/src, rebuilding kernel/world,
and using portupgrade to update all installed ports from packages
available on the 8.0RC1 DVD-iso.

Since the update, my X11 is laggy. Now, I often have to move the mouse
before keystrokes/button presses take effect.

Make sure hal and dbus are enabled in rc.conf and running.  In xorg.conf,
remove Option "AllowEmptyInput" "off".

A bonus of using hal is that you can remove the keyboard and mouse sections
from xorg.conf.

As I've mentioned, I've updated the kernel/world, and updated
libpciaccess. Perhaps I'm having issues because I need to remove old
libs. How do I remove old libs?

cd /usr/src
make check-old-libs
make delete-old-libs

I deleted old libs using 'make delete-old-libs' from /usr/src, but
that has led to many other problems.
It seems many libraries currently in use were deleted in the process.
I'm having to rebuild/reinstall many of my applications to get them
working again.
And gdm doesn't work anymore. Initially X was complaining about
missing libraries, but after reinstalling a few packages, I now have
gdm going into an endless loop in which it X tries to startup,
displays the mouse pointer, and then re-initializes itself.
Starting X by itself gets me similar behaviour: the screen blanks out,
and then nothing happens.

There is nothing in /var/log/messages or on the console to help debug
the problem. No man page for gdm. Any ideas on what should be done?
