Hello again, Kiffin.

Try to add this line to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

ModulePath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules"

I want to say, mantain the module path "/usr/local/lib/xorg/modules", but
add too "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules". It's the way where Nvidia legacy driver
1.0-96xx still put the module when building. Maybe this guys adapt the driver 
to the new FreeBSD Xorg structure soon.

Hope this help.
