I've been able to get q3 and pretty much every other linux game running 
on FreeBSD (including WineX running WC3) without much of a problem. I 
wasn't using the DRI stuff though, I was using nVidia's commercial 
drivers for FreeBSD with a Geforce3 Ti 200. I can't go back and test 
right now though because I've since bought a new video card.
