Apparently it is ..
My kernel conf looks like this (relevant part only):

# VGA
device          vga                 # VGA video card driver

# Vesa support and options
options     VESA            # VESA support (man syscons)
options     SC_PIXEL_MODE   # SC Screen Resolution (man syscons)
options     SC_KERNEL_CONS_ATTR=(FG_LIGHTRED|BG_BLACK) # Kernel message will 
be printed red on black

# Splash and ScreenSaver support
device          splash          # Splash screen and screen saver support

# syscons is the default console driver, resembling an SCO console
device          sc

on /etc/rc.d

allscreens_flags="MODE_280"

On that scenario, the only working screensaver seems to be "logo_saver" ... 
the rest of the screensavers don't work.
