It should not be directly related to system in any way. Googling
around, I found that Xorg resolutions and modelines must be configured
for projectors in the same way as with second monitors ie creating
another display or screen layout in xorg.conf.
But is should work "out of box way" if for example projector/monitor
support current Xorg resolution.
Also there are some problems (found by googling) with gdm and
projectors in linux environment (no reasons why it should not happen
in freebsd also).
