Maybe 6.8.2 does not support your video card. I'll update the packages
really soon, at this moment you can try to use my repository to test
the new packages:

* Install pkgsrc/devel/subversion-base
* svn co
* cat README

I'm using xorg-6.9.0, and it works perfectly on my Radeon 9600 XT PRO.

Good luck.
