I've got an nvidia card and I've got these ticked:

$ pkg_info | grep X | grep driver
xf86-input-keyboard-1.3.2 X.Org keyboard input driver
xf86-input-mouse-1.4.0_3 X.Org mouse input driver
xf86-video-nv-2.1.12_2 X.Org nv display driver
xf86-video-vesa-2.1.0 X.Org vesa display driver
xorg-drivers-7.4    X.org drivers meta-port

# cd /usr/ports/x11-drivers/xorg-drivers; make config

to set them. (My ports are a bit out of date BTW). You don't need the
vesa driver either.
