Both the xf86-video-ati and xf86-video-radeonhd from ports should
work with this realease and hardware. I'm using radeonhd on an
X1650. Works fine.

This is referring to the radeon/drm kernel modules. Since you get direct
rendering, I'm assuming you've already have those modules loaded or
built into the kernel. I have the following modules loaded:

slackbox:~> kldstat
Id Refs Address            Size     Name
 1    8 0xffffffff80100000 681588   kernel
 2    2 0xffffffff80782000 ee78     agp.ko
 3    2 0xffffffff80791000 220f8    drm.ko
 4    1 0xffffffff807b4000 71110    radeon.ko

(This won't show drivers built into the kernel)

This is probably a bug in wine:
