The tdfx driver is for the older fullscreen only glide2 apps.
If you are only interested in "better" 2D X11 performance you'll need the
"tdfx" as the "Driver" in the X11 config's "Device" section
(/etc/X11/XFree86.conf or more recently /etc/X11/xorg.conf).
The voodoo 3/4/5 supports 3D opengl acceleration in XFree86 or X.org's
implementation of X11, for which you need the "tdfxdrm" kernel module, the
device nodes for that appear in /dev/dri/ when the card is detected and
the kernel module loaded.
You'll need to have 'load "dri"' and 'load "glx"' in the X11 config's
For 3D acceleration you'll also need the x11-servers/driglide or
graphics/glide3 port (not sure which you'll have in your ports
tree) installed. Note that the voodoo3 only supports opengl in 16bit
color depth with the DRI.
The voodoo3 is getting a bit dated hardware wise.
http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/ should have some notes about it.
