This morning I had a partial success!
The problem seems to have been a bad CVS build of xorg
(either I pulled the CVS at a bad time or my build had problems).

With the new build from friday it actually worked almost directly,
I had to tune the timings and resolutions a bit.
Below the relevant lines from my xorg.conf.

My build still has rendering problems in the details (mostly fonts),
but this might be another issue with the current CVS or 
some active acceleration.

This is a good step forwards as I need this external output for presentations.
Thanks to everybody who helped with suggestions,
especially Ben, Johannes Berg, John Steele Scott.

Am I right in assuming that once your coworked gets one of these,
and your tiem allows it, you will give it a try? :)
