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*.
