I don't know if it's a typo, but xorg.conf should be in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
It doesn't matter, both /etc/xorg.conf and /etc/X11/xorg.conf will work.

I am not sure that the s3 driver is loaded. I tried the command kldload s3 and went to loader.conf and added: load_s3="YES" and rebooted.
You don't need to load a kernel module for the s3 driver, but you will need to install the Xorg driver:
x11-drivers/xf86-video-s3
x11-drivers/xf86-video-s3virge

You didn't mention which card you have, you can find which card is supported by which driver in their manpages:
s3(4)
s3virge(4)
