Intel G965 graphics, 7.2, and FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE

I'm having problems starting X on my new DELL Dimension E520 desktop. It has
an Intel G965 Express Chipset (with ICH8 SATA I/O controller, PCI Express,
etc.). I have recently installed FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE on this machine
(although the SATA DVD drive is not supported by FreeBSD yet) and have
installed the latest 7.2 using pkg_add.
When I start X, I get the following error message:


Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting, (++) from
command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational, (WW) warning, (EE) error,
(NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(==) Log file: "/var/log/Xorg.0.log", Time: Mon May 23 15:11:36 2007
(WW) I810: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:2:1) found
(EE) GARTInit: Unable to open /dev/agpgart (No such file or directory)
(EE) I810(0): Failed to allocate framebuffer. Is your VideoRAM set too low

Fatal server error:
AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0


Here are my Xorg.0.log and xorg.conf (automatically generated by xorgcfg):

Xorg.0.log :
xorg.conf   :

As far as I could find out by googling, FreeBSD cannot use this device
because the i810 driver looks for AGP devices and this is not one. Is
this true? Any ideas on how to fix this?
