Actually macppc and sparc64 are two ports that imediately spring to mind.
It looks like Tonnere removed the worst hack from the kenrel part, but is

Once the DMA engine is in place (and designed well) and details of wscons
and/or /dev/fb integration worked out, we can easily adjust any
X source you like to use this.
