Well, if nothing else, I think you could get XAccel (xig.com) to support it,
because I've got a laptop with that chipset running some version of their
server. You might also check other commercial X vendors.
Of course, I don't know which if any of them have NetBSD-specific support,
but that's okay, NetBSD/i386 is the most promiscuous OS I've ever seen.
