I have an AXPpci33 with a:
vga0 at pci0 dev 8 function 0: Matrox MGA Millennium 2064W ("Storm") (rev. 0x01)

I'm running 1.6 (including the 1.6 X11 binaries). When I try to run
XalphaNetBSD I get a failure due to (from ktrace):

   326 XalphaNetBSD NAMI  "/dev/ttyE5"
   326 XalphaNetBSD RET   access 0  
   326 XalphaNetBSD CALL  open(0x120270486,0x2,0)
   326 XalphaNetBSD NAMI  "/dev/ttyE5"
   326 XalphaNetBSD RET   open 6
   326 XalphaNetBSD CALL  ioctl(0x6,_IOR('W',0x40,0x4),0x1202eb604)
   326 XalphaNetBSD RET   ioctl 0
   326 XalphaNetBSD CALL  ioctl(0x6,_IOR('W',0x41,0x10),0x1202eb5f4)
   326 XalphaNetBSD RET   ioctl -1 errno 25 Inappropriate ioctl for device

That's a WSDISPLAYIO_GINFO ioctl that fails. I notice in dev/ic/vga.c
that that ioctl isn't implemented. 

So, what's up? Do I need to recompile X? (Come to think of it, what
X release are we using?)
