I just installed XFree86 3.1 on the home machine (a 66Mhz DX2 w/16Mb) running
NetBSD 1.0.  Works like a charm (and I finally got rid of that shimmer on the
left edge of the monitor I had under 2.1.1).  No loss of speed as far as I can

I don't know what to tell you, other than perhaps you should try 1.0, as 
opposed to 1.0_BETA (1.0 isn't released officially yet, but you can get a
"pre-1.0" installation).  The other obvious answer is perhaps you have XFree
configured incorrectly to not take advantage of an accelerated graphics card,
if you have one.
