it's not compatible to Trio64 (well, S3 claims that it's pin-compatible;
don't know about that but the graphics engine etc. is *completely* different)

it wasn't really "ported" but only complied. I didn't have the time
to run or test it on AXP before XFree86 3.2 was finalized and guess what,
it doesn't work at all on AXP, sorry :-(

absolutely correct. right now I have a version of the ViRGE server
running on AXP and there are some minor problems left (text fonts may get
corrupted; and switching to other virtual consoles and back to X11
still might hang the server; hope to find/fix this RSN).
for "X-only" operation it looks better (but I didn't run any tests yet).
hope there will be a new binary within some time (1-2 weeks?)
but I first have to ask how we handle such fixes for XFree86
(I'd guess there will be some "patchlevel N" server binaries..)
