I've recently acquired a radeon 9800pro and am now trying to get it

The XFree86-4.3.0 Radeon driver does not support the Radeon 9800.

See <http://www.xfree86.org/current/radeon.4.html>.

For this reason, I recently chose to purchase a Radeon 9500 instead
of something newer.

XFree86 ought to support the Radeon 9800 as a generic SVGA card anyway.

ISTR some stuff in the XFree86 changelogs about newer Radeon card support, including the R350 chip, but the FreeBSD XFree port maintainer ought to know best.

If you want to try with the most recent XFree snapshot or cvsup the latest source, you will have to make minor changes to Radeon and R200 vtxtmp files to get a successful build on FreeBSD. (By "minor," I mean the deletion of two "#" signs at the beginning of each file. For the exact changes, see the record of the port maintainer's patches at <URL: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/ports/x11-servers/XFree86-4-Server/files/patch-r200_vtxtmp_x86.S?rev=1.1&content-type=text/x-cvsweb-markup> and <URL: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/ports/x11-servers/XFree86-4-Server/files/patch-radeon_vtxtmp_x86.S?rev=1.1&content-type=text/x-cvsweb-markup>.)
