X suddenly not working

Question

I had a system with X running fine, rebuilt world and now it's no longer working. So I added X to another system, which didn't have it, and on it, too, X won't launch. Both systems are running in VirtualBox.

make.conf

GRUB_PLATFORMS="pc"

VIDEO_CARDS="intel vmware virtualbox"

ego.conf

# This is the ego.conf file

[kits]

# You can set your default kits here. Unset kits will use the Funtoo default prime/master
# branch by default.

# python-kit = 3.6-prime

xorg-kit = 1.19-prime

This is odd, but for the previously working other machine going back in time, I had to really go back before I could find a snapshot where X would work. Here are the differences:

Working epro show has mix-in set to xfce whereas failing one has nothing for the mix-in.

Working epro doesn't have an X-kit whereas the failing one has xorg-kit = 1.19-prime.

Make.conf seems to be the same, indicating VIDEO_CARDS="intel vmware" (this machine runs under VMWare.)

I started a fresh install under virtualbox and errors are piling up. First, 

Messages for package x11-drivers/xf86-video-virtualbox-5.1.30:

 * You need to edit the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf and set:
 * 
 *   Driver  "vboxvideo"
 * 
 * in the Graphics device section (Section "Device")

I've never seen that before. This file doesn't even exist.

Second, it complains 

ERROR: app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions-5.1.30::xorg-kit failed

I confirmed the original issue is a bug. When "intel" is supplied to VIDEO_CARDS for X11, it inappropriately installs an unnecessary file, 20-intel.conf in xorg.conf.d. The presence of this file overrides the normal device detection in X11 and forces it to think the video card is intel. If there is not an actual Intel video card, X11 will throw up its hands and fail.
