[CC'd for anyone who may need this resolution]

Hi Carl,
  Yes, I actually did determine the resolution to the problem. Since I had been 
running the system since 4.7-release, I used the drm-kmod package in the ports tree to 
get the DRI support. An undocumented (as far as I can tell) change from 4.7-stable to 
4.8-stable includes the drm kernel module in the kernel module sources, and the 
drm-kmod port is depricated. If you remove the drm-kmod startup script from 
/usr/local/etc/rc.d, optionaly pkg_delete the drm-kmod package, and rebuild your 
kernel with options drm and agp added, you should have hardware support upon loading 
the new kernel. I've browsed through the UPDATING file from my last source update and 
I've found no mention of this change between 4.7-release and 4.8-release. Does anyone 
know why? (my being dense is a perfectly valid reason)
