BTW checkout this link
You say the ids seem to be there, do you mean in /usr/ports/net/nvnet/
This will be different on your machine:
$ pciconf -lv|grep nv
nv0 at pci0:4:0: class=0x020000 card=0x10001695 chip=0x006610de rev=0xa1
but does the chip equal 0x00D610de on your machine? D6 is the chip id
an 10de is for manufacturer.
