does your console load w/o attempting to load the vesa driver?  if it 
does you might want to take a stab at using the SCFB xorg driver:

xf86-video-scfb-0.0.4_5        X.Org syscons display driver

It's a software driver, which while it may be slow - but it certainly is 
usable for browsing, hacking and email.  it is what i was using on my 
systems until we could get the drm-next code in a semi-usable state.

i'm not %100 sure why vesa would refuse to load the as a kmod - might be 
worth pinging freebsd-x11@ if you get frustrated with it :)
