normally Xorg should detect all graphics hardware and automatically
assign proper drivers to the hardware. If it cannot find the proper
driver it usually resorts to the vgatext or vesa driver.
I don't know why your system doesn't assign the matrox driver (or
whatever name the Solaris driver for Matrox hardware has) is used for
your card; if Xorg fails to identofy the proper driver, if it is
incompatible with your hardware or if the driver is not installed at all
in your system.
You could also try to manually build your own xorg.conf file and add
something along the lines of:
Identifier "Builtin Default Matrox Device 0"
I think you should also have a Monitor section, a Screen section and a
ServerLayout section ...
