Actually the nvidia.ko mdule was and is loaded
hpbsd# kldstat

I was able to eliminate the following error
--------------------
(II) LoadModule: "wfb"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libwfb.so
dlopen: Shared object "librpcsvc.so.2" not found, required by "libwfb.so"
(EE) Failed to load /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libwfb.so
------------------
because the required librpcsvc.so.2 has become  (and is presente as) 
librpcsvc.so.3. Therefore I linked 
ln -s librpcsvc.so.3 librpcsvc.so.2

That's ok now BUT

still something incorrect prevents startx to fire X.
The problems seems to be /dev/nvidiactl!

Please help - Vittorio
