What do you mean by basic support ? My PCIE X700 now has semi working
3D acceleration - glx and working dri working well enough to play with
a few OpenGL apps, I've gone so far as to actually set some of the
reallyslick screensavers up - and most work okay, well, not all, some
of them whine about the odd issue, but there is limited 3D acceleration
here.

The 6.9 in the ports gave me only 2D acceleration, as expected, no DRI
no glx etc.

So, which version of 7.x is coming into the ports, and what version of
the ati driver will be coming in with it ?
