Is Matrox Impression_Ultima supposed to work with Xorg on FreeBSD?

I put in an old Matrox card in -- it certainly works in text mode.

pciconf describes it as:

    vgapci0 at pci0:1:7:0:     class=0x030000 card=0x00000000
    chip=0x0d10102b rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
        vendor     = 'Matrox Electronic Systems Ltd.'
        device     = 'MGA-I Athena (Ultima/Impression board)'
        class      = display
        subclass   = VGA

I used the x11-drivers/xf86-video-mga
<> port to install
the mga-driver (version 1.4.11). The xorg.conf entry is:

    Section "Device"
            Identifier      "Matrox"
            Driver          "mga"
            VendorName     "XF86"
            BoardName       "MGA-I Athena"
            BusID           "PCI:1:7:0"
            Option          "ForcePciDma"   "on"

But it is not seen by the Xorg-7.5:

    (II) MGA: driver for Matrox chipsets: mga2064w, mga1064sg, mga2164w,
            mga2164w AGP, mgag100, mgag100 PCI, mgag200, mgag200 PCI,
            mgag200 SE A PCI, mgag200 SE B PCI, mgag200 EV Maxim,
            mgag200 eW Nuvoton, mgag200eH, mgag400, mgag550
    (II) Primary Device is:
    (EE) No devices detected.

I don't think, FreeBSD's mgadrm sees it either... Any suggestions? Thanks!
