Need help getting Xinerama working on Xorg 7.3 / Intel 945GM

I'm unable to get Xinerama working on the following configuration:

Computer: Compaq nx7400
OS:       FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE i386, SMP kernel
Video:    Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics
915Res:   i915resolution_enable="YES"
          i915resolution_modes="3c 4d 5c"
Xorg ver: xorg-7.3_1
Xorg drv: Driver "vesa"

I've configured my xorg.conf correctly, but when I startx, nothing
displays on the external monitor (Planar PL1700).  In fact, the
monitor displays "No Signal".

Just a bit of background, I've successfully configured Xinerama (and
nView) on a number of boxes in the past.  But I'm being vexed on this
particular laptop that is currently running Xorg in single head.

I'd be glad to supply my xorg.conf and/or Xorg.0.log if necessary and
any help is greatly appreciated.
