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. Regards.
