You can find more info at <http://www.debian.org/~branden>; however:

The AGPGART interface has changed in recent Linux kernels to be compatible
with the one used in XFree86 4.x.  However, this is incompatible with the
AGPGART interface used in XFree86 3.x!

You have two options:

1) Upgrade to the beta XFree86 4.x packages at the URL above
2) Downgrade your kernel to 2.2.17
