There are multiple ways to do this, i.e. xinerama.  Try googling
for "multiple monitors xorg" or something like that.

If you use the nVidia-driver from ports, it's even easier,
I just modified my xorg.conf:

  Section "Device"
      Identifier  "NV AGP"
      Driver      "nvidia"
      BusID	      "PCI:1:0:0"
      Option      "TwinView" "on"
      Option      "MetaModes" "1280x1024,1280x1024; 1024x768,NULL"
      Option      "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "28-64"
      Option      "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
      Option      "TwinViewOrientation" "LeftOf"

I haven't tried, but in all probability: yes.
