I have the XFree86 package that came with the 4.6.2 cd. I've never tried to compile it from ports because I figured it would be a long download and I'm on dialup. Does this options add the mga_hal module?
When you mentioned official Matrox drivers I checked the matrox website and found some linux drivers with source. I guess thats not what you meant.
I also tried getting dri working by compiling agp into the kernel. XFree86 still gives errors about not finding mga_hal, then disabling dri. Are these things needed for dma with the wintv and if so where do I get mga_hal?
The WITH_MATROX_GXX_DRIVER option installs that mga_hal binary from Matrox and uses Matrox's source for the 2d driver. At some point I may break the binary driver off into its own port which just installs the mga_hal and we wouldn't use Matrox's 2d source at all.
XFree86 from ports is a significant download, but since it includes security updates I highly recommend it.
As far as DRI, you should be able to get it working by following the instructions at the link in the .sig. DRI shouldn't be needed for anything but hw-accel 3d. I could be wrong, though, I don't know too much about the Matrox situation.
