There is neither a SVGA nor a AGP server in XFree86 4.2.0. There is a
single server with loadable drivers. These drivers could take advantage
of AGP if NetBSD had the necessary DRI framework.

I don't know. I'm not even sure if it will build because I just don't
have the hardware to test it. A first step would be to try to build
and provide patchesC - just reporting build failures won't help - if

CPU NetBSD-i386 systems a while ago but Frank van der Linden fixed the
kernel bug which causes that.
