I have only managed to configure X11 tu use an external monitor.
Take a look at the xorg.xonf files on http://www.aronchi.org/LinuxOnIBookG4
Another thing I noticed is that it even depends on the VGA cable
(if you are using the mini-DVI-to-VGA-Adapter) whether this works
or not: with Mac OS X any VGA-cable will do, under Gentoo some
will not work (depends on what pins are missing).

pbbuttonsd should be able to do that, too, but I have not yet
tried this feature.
