Nope.  I just grabbed mesa from freedesktop git and built the
freebsd-dri target.  I then copied the newly libGL.so.1 and r300_dri.so
files into their proper location on my system.

Yes, the radeonhd driver only works on r500 and r600 cards.  The card I
tested with (an RV515) is marked as experimental and, as a result, the
driver won't work with it.

In addition, the driver displays some other problems on FreeBSD that the
developers will have to look at (actually, they seem to think it's a
problem with the X server as it happened with avivo as well).  They
developers have the Xorg log files from me and will be getting around to
them eventually :-)
