 After nearly a year, I finally got a chance to poke at this again.
 Now running a recent i386-8.99.1 build with native Xorg, it claims to
 read a whole bunch of modes but only tries 2048x1536x85Hz which is out
 of range of the monitor.  The Xorg.0.log file still insists there is a
 DVI output even though there isn't one--only VGA.
 A minimal "xorg.conf" defining the monitor frequencies and modelines
 and a corresponding "Screen" section with "Display" subsection is
 necessary to make it work.  Using what is supposed to be the correct
 mode by name alone (without a Modeline in the monitor section) produces
 a default 1024x768 display.  As none of the allegedly-read modes are
 actually supported by the display, the correct modeline had to be
 generated with the 'gtf' utility.
