First off, reading previous posts is always a good idea.  The 
freebsd-x11@ archive (http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-x11/) 
is the best resource for your question, but another person asked about 
XFree86 4.4 no more than 5.5 hours ago on this list and received an answer.

In short, the update to 4.4 will happen Real Soon Now (tm).  The longer 
version is that the 4.4 update is dependent on an update to imake, and 
the coordination between the XFree86 and xorg ports is slowing that down.

The x11-servers/XFree86-4-Server-snap might support the IGP 345M (it's a 
snapshot of 4.4 from late in the development cycle -- it works fine on 
my Radeon 9800 Pro).  Just replace x11-servers/XFree86-4-Server with it 
(using portupgrade: 'portupgrade -o x11-servers/XFree86-4-Server-snap 
x11-servers/XFree86-4-Server') and you should be good to go (may have to 
'pkgdb -F' to clean up dependencies).  Also, others have reported 
success with the x11-servers/xorg-server port.
