If you have the compat options
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_PCVT # emulate some ioctls
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_USL # VT handling
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_RAWKBD # can get raw scancodes
in your config file, pcvt is emulated sufficiently for X.
With old servers, you'll only need to make some symlinks
/dev/ttyv* -> /dev/ttyE*.
