I also discovered that you must install the -stable sources *from cvs*, and then make the /usr/src/sys/modules/drm directory in order for drm to show up as a kernel module. It's not there in the default binary install, and installing the sources via /stand/sysinstall doesn't do it either. Odd. In any case, it works now. Thanks for the help.
