I did this by hard-coding the enlarged screen size in the function 
grfmv_init in sys/arch/mac68k/dev/grf_mv.c. It's a bit ugly, as you 
then have to boot with a different kernel if you want to use the 
original screen size, but it works and it doesn't seem to have broken 
anything. I don't know if there is a better way.

The extra screen space is very nice with X.

I don't know.

Yep. Both imake and xmkmf work correctly. I've compiled things both from 
the X contrib distribution and other X apps (like xv and emacs) with 
usually no problems at all.
