There doesn't seem to be a BSD DRM module for mach64. For say, mga,
though, in the built tree, in
make <options, as below>.
The other modules are in adjacent directories. gcc-3.3.1 broke some of
them, but I think at least mga, tdfx and r128 built. Fixes to the
others would probably not be difficult, but it's still "hacker's only"
at this point.
That's all I know. Erik is the DRI guy who has been doing the work on
this. You should probably direct any more questions to Erik.
