My system works like a charm with AGP 8x (from /var/log/Xorg.0.log):

X Window System Version 6.9.0
Release Date: 21 December 2005
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.9
Build Operating System: FreeBSD 6.0 amd64 [ELF] 
Current Operating System: FreeBSD slackbox.xs4all.nl 6.1-STABLE FreeBSD 6.1-STAB

(--) Chipset ATI Radeon 9200PRO 5960 (AGP) found
(**) RADEON(0): AGP 8x mode is configured
(II) RADEON(0): AGP Fast Write disabled by default

I use startx, not gdm, in case that matters.

Maybe you should look into the radeon kernel driver. There used to be
some 32-bitness issues here and there, but I thought they were all fixed
before 6.0. Maybe there have been some new bugs introduced in CURRENT?
