No, I was using the nouveau driver, which doesn't use an xorg.conf.
When I previously installed the nvidia driver I believe it 
created an appropriate xorg.conf.  I didn't check this time and have
since purged nvidia, so cannot immediately verify.  
Do I need to install something else to generate the xorg.conf?  
I can hand create it (it's simple enough), but that shouldn't be
