This will overwrite some files installed by the nvidia driver. I'm always reinstalling nvidia-driver after upgrading XFree86-Server/libraries just to be sure. It's also necessary to reinstall the nvidia driver after upgrading FreeBSD. I prefer to reboot the machine after any nvidia-driver reinstall to be entirely sure that I have the newest kernel module loaded. Yes, that's ugly, but I got a bit reluctant on kldunload/kldload'ing this sort of critical things. My home desktop doesn't have a large uptime anyway as I'm turning it off if I don't need it.
