A question about graphics subsystems under FreeBSD

I have a port mkdesktop which simplifies the task of FreeBSD desktop
configuration. I was looking to enhance the port in its capabilities and
it would help me if I could know the various pkg's and kld's needed by
the various chipsets.
As per my (incomplete) knowledge, the following are usually needed:
Chipset | <Packages> | <Modules>
AMD GPU | drm-kmod:xf86-video-amdgpu |
Radeon | drm-kmod:xf86-video-ati | radeonkms.ko**
NVidia | drm-kmod:nvidia-driver | nvidia.ko:nvidia-modeset.ko
Intel GPU | drm-kmod:xf86-video-intel |
(** : Radeon appears to need radeon.ko and radeonkms.ko under FreeBSD
11.x, and only radeonkms.ko in 12.0)
I doubt if the above table is entirely correct and complete.
Could someone please fill me in on the missing tidbits so that I can
enhance my port (mkdesktop).
Thanks for any help.
