I haven't seen acceptable EXA performance with intel 2.4.x driver either 
(using 965 series hardware). But AFAIK there is no hope to get it fixed 
without recent xserver and Mesa. The ones in pkgsrc are far too old. At 
least using xserver 1.6 and Mesa 7.4 makes it fly for me. Your mileage 
may vary of course.
