Trouble configuring xorg on a 64-bit system

I've been working on X today and have all the applicable packages installed. 
The problem is that I can't get it to start properly.

I keep getting the message:

FATAL: Module fbcon not found

Below are excerpts of files that may have a bearing, but I can't get the system 
to come up properly.  Note that there are no errors indicated in 
/var/log/Xorg.0.log.

I'd appreciate any advice here.

The generated config file has:

Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "X.org Configured"
    Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
    InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    Option         "AllowEmptyInput" "FALSE"
EndSection

I found that the Option was required to prevent disabling all input devices.

Section "Module"
    Load  "dbe"
    Load  "dri"
    Load  "dri2"
    Load  "glx"
    Load  "extmod"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Card0"
    Driver      "intel"
    VendorName  "Unknown Vendor"
    BoardName   "Unknown Board"
    BusID       "PCI:0:2:0"
EndSection

lspci gives:
