The kernel booted. I have pressed 'e', added 'set kFreeBSD.hint.agp.0.disabled=1' and booted with Ctrl-X. F10 does not seem to work. Kernel booted and, I believe, it was about to start XFCE (there was a message which said that), then the same panic screen appeared. As if it somehow 'forgot' the hint, or as if it re-read the hints from somewhere else.

As soon as OS got installed I have added it to device.hints file. I was able to run X with IceWM window manager. I got wifi working, as well. However, there were problems with some binary packages, Firefox among them. This machine is to weak to build Firefox from ports. I know it is an old machine and I shouldn't be bothering people with it. It is more kind of hobby to me.
pkg install firefox
So I thought I might try some other BSD, and I took GhostBSD. I've noticed it is 10.3 based, not 11.0, but being a desktop OS, I figured Firefox, office and some other things might be expected to run out of the box.
Your advice worked and I managed to boot the kernel. Then, as far as I understand, live CD was about to start. I've read the message saying something about starting XFCE (yes, I have downloaded XFCE edition, rather than Mate). Then I got kernel panic again, with exactly the same output as one I've got when I tried to boot without hint mentioned above.
Failsafe VESA boot results in the same kernel panic. I am grateful for your time, but this looks pretty much hopeless to me. Perhaps I might try to load or unload some agp related kernel modules. Here is what Slackware Linux says about it (on the same machine):
~:# lsmod | grep agp
intel_agp 9481 0
intel_gtt 11458 3 i915,intel_agp
agpgart 26524 3 drm,intel_agp,intel_gtt
