Xorg/intel driver on FreeBSD 11.2 no longer detects DVI output

I have an old Intel 945G card and had been running Xorg with the intel driver on FreeBSD 10.3 without any problems. This month, I upgraded to 11.2 (a completely fresh install) and now Xorg doesn't work at all.

According to the logs, it seems as if the intel driver cannot even detect the DVI output - to which my sole monitor is connected. It only detects the (analog) VGA output and since nothing is connected to that, when I start Xorg the monitor goes blank and the LED turns orange.

Meanwhile, on my parallel installation of Debian 9, Xorg/intel driver detects the DVI output and runs without any issues.

I have attached the FreeBSD Xorg log, the relevant FreeBSD kernel messages, and Debian's Xorg log for reference.

Please help!

I tried to install and use graphics/drm-stable-kmod but even that doesn't detect the DVI output.

Attached the output of "kldload /boot/modules/i915kms.ko"

Before the driver is loaded, xrandr outputs "Can't open display". After the driver is loaded, the output of xrandr is empty.
