The OP does not have to build Xorg manually.  The ports system
already does this, and his video chipset is old enough to be supported
by the latest release Xorg (if it isn't, then a CVS Xorg won't help.)

The OP could post the error messages pertaining to DRI
(from /var/log/Xorg.0.log) plus the output from "xdriinfo"
and "kldstat".
