XFree86 3 consists of several Xservers for various graphic chips. The
SVGA Xserver of 3.3.6 includes the code for the trident chips. XFree86
4 has only one Xserver that loads the required driver as a module, for
instance trident_drv.o which contains the code for the trident chips.
The problem you have is that as far as I can see it the trident driver
for XFree86 4 is a complete rewrite.
