The Matrox is not expected to work, it's still a pretty non-portable
driver and it requires executing the x86 bios code on the card which
current Xfree86 should do properly even on Sparc but that doesn't get
much testing.

At it's best I had a Rage128 card's x86 bios running properly and then
xfree86 using it.

The Mach64 is only going to work if it has Sun firmware on it, all the
x86 bios stuff gets bypassed in the ATI driver and it'd be a real pain
to turn the back on in the Sparc builds.
