At least Xamiga24 and XamigaR6 (which are my creations:-)) don't use a
RetinaMonitor File. You have to either fix the grf_rt3.c (or
grf_rh.c depending on your NetBSD release) driver to enable setting of a
videomode when in gfx-mode (see the grf_rt3.c in sys-dev.tar.gz) to be
able to use "-mode 7" (as an example), OR patch the gfx-defaults variable
in your kernel to use a different mode (dunno the name in the 1.0 driver).
