You should install them yourself.

I really wonder why the XFree team decided this way. There ought to be a
better way.
Some link's or include directives for the Xfree would have done it (I guess)

But "they" even decided that syscons was the console driver of choice.
Not that I have any problems in using either pccons or pcvt.
