There are many drivers that do text display on a graphics framebuffer
without using any "native" text support. The one I'm most familiar
with is the driver for the DEC TGA card in sys/dev/pci/tga.c. It makes
use of the rasops and wsfont subsystems (in dev/rasops and dev/wsfont)
to draw directly on the framebuffer for a text console, using some of
the card's accelleration abilities.
Other drivers that do similar stuff include:
dev/sun/fb.c with RASTERCONSOLE enabled
