It seems I cannot load radeon_drv nor radeonhd_drv with revision 120
of xorg-dev :

(II) Loading /usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/
dlopen: /usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/ Undefined
symbol "resVgaShared"
(EE) Failed to load /usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/
(II) UnloadModule: "radeon"
(EE) Failed to load module "radeon" (loader failed, 7)

Same for radeonhd_drv.

I have these two drivers referred in /etc/X11/xorg.conf and linked to
the Screen and ServerLayout sections, but nothing else.  The default
xorg.conf wants to load ati_drv which is unsuitable (ATI X1450).

There might be some old patch files in the files/ directories laying
around in my ports tree, since I just cp'ed the new files to
/usr/ports.  I didn't get any build errors however.

Any clue?
