I'm not certain, but this is what x86emu is for in X11.

VGA is a PC concept and just about nothing about it really make sense on 
a different architecture.  The interface is an extension of the PC BIOS 
(software interrupts) and the dictated memory layouts are specific to 
the x86.  I think most non-x86 systems have to use native drivers for 
whatever graphics cards they support from the start.
