I recompiled the kernel with AGP support enabled. The FreeBSD agp driver 
yields the same results. Meaning the same error message* and the same 
fps :-( . Maybe it is an idea to upgrade the kernel? I searched for a 
good howto but couldn't find anything useful. Who knows a link with more 
information about this?

*login: NVRM: AGP cannot be enabled on this combination of the AMD CPU 
and OS kernel
NVRM: kernel upgrade recommended.
