Dear Piotr Wozniak,

When I installed XFree86 3.3.6 (via the ports mechanism), I had the 
opportunity of installing the VGA server(s). More precisely:

<installation.log>

[...]

Which servers do you wish to build, you can save a lot of disk space
by only compiling the server you will be using.  It will also save you
considerable compile time.
*** If you want to use XF86Setup to set the INITIAL configuration,
*** then you must build the VGA server
Do you want to build the VGA16 server? [YES] Y
Do you want to build the VGA16Dual server? [YES] Y

[...]

</installation.log>  

As to modeline "hacking", you may wish to have a look at 
http://www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/XFree86-Video-Timings-HOWTO.html, 
and/or at Greg's excellent book (The Complete FreeBSD).  

HTH,
Salvo
