This raises a question for me.

I have nvidia-driver 460.67 built Thu Mar 11 00:03:14 UTC 2021 installed
and working without any problem.

I disabled Linux support in the port config.

On my system libglvnd is not to be found anywhere outside the ports tree,
i.e. the shared library was never installed under /usr/local.

So, why is this library suddenly being required for nividia-driver?
