xorg driver for Intel "3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)"

I have recently upgraded to hardware that contains a graphic controller
described in lspci as:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core
processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)

I have only the following x11 video driver packages installed:

(Tried upgrading this to latest in pkgsrc, though it seems it is not yet
stable in pkgsrc)


From X11 log I find that it is not picking up intel driver and instead is
using the vesa driver.

Following is the relevant portion of the log:

 167 (II) LoadModule: "intel"
 168 (II) Loading /usr/pkg/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//
