When my system boots, it comes up using vgafb.
How can I change this to use matroxfb?

If you have only one VGA device in your box, do not compile
If you have more than one VGA device, and they are all Matroxes,
do not compile vgafb.
If you have more than one VGA device, and only some of them are
Matroxes, you must make Matrox your secondary device, as vgafb
does handle only primary devices.
You can also disable vgafb at boottime by using
video=vga16:off, but I strongly recommend you to remove
vgafb from your kernel completely.
