OK. Scratch that idea. You don't want linux-XFree86-libs with linux_base-7.1_5. However, on reviewing earlier messages in the thread I notice you're running an NVIDIA graphics adapter using the default X11 'nv' driver -- and that doesn't give you any sort of accelerated 3D graphics support at all. Instead, install the x11/nvidia-driver port. This is a port of the linux code for driving NVIDIA cards, and it overwrites the X11R6 supplied libGL.so.1 shlib with it's own version. Read the docs carefully and be prepared to fiddle about with kernel configuration in order to get things working. As the driver is linux code already, linux programs should be able to run with it just fine. (Just remember to re-install the NVIDIA drivers if ever you upgrade XFree86-libs) Also make sure you don't have 'Load "dri"' in your /etc/X11/XF86Config, but that you do have 'Load "glx"', and check /var/log/XFree86.0.log to see if the X server is having problems. There's a whole thread on this precisely issue starting with: http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-questions/2003-November/025013.html which you should certainly look at.
