I wouldn't read too much in to it. What was provided only fit a fairly
narrow niche. Nvidia won't build their libraries on freebsd until we
"prove the market" which is fairly hard to do when you have to jump
through hoops just to get it to run and need to have a linux
environment to build the apps.
