You can also do this by using the driver from XFree86's binary packages for 4.4.
Once you have XFree86-4 installed using the port, do a portupgrade of
the -Server port using the 4.3.99 snapshot port:

portupgrade -f -o x11-servers/XFree86-4-Server-snap XFree86-Server

Then you need to grab the via_drv.o file from the XFree86 binary
package.  I just installed the whole thing to a temp dir, then copied
over the driver module.  From XFree86.0.log:

(II) LoadModule: "via"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/via_drv.o
(II) Module via: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
        compiled for 4.4.0, module version = 4.1.30
        Module class: XFree86 Video Driver
        ABI class: XFree86 Video Driver, version 0.7
