I think I've secured a spare AlphaPC164 to look into this a bit more
seriously.  If I recall (without checking up in the archives), the
problems with XFree86 have been "we (NetBSD) don't just want to make the
VGA card look like a PC to XFree like some other Un*x clones do, we want
a nice MI interface"?  Is this a fair summary?
