FreeBSD Port: nvidia-driver for geforce 9500 GT

I recently installed FreeBSD 10.2 on a computer with a Geforce 9500 GT.
The nvidia archive site says that the nvidia-driver-340-340.76 and the
nvidia-driver-304-304.125 should work. When I try to make the port for
either of these, I get an error "This driver does not support FreeBSD
10.xx/-current" There are then more error messages.
I have downloaded 319.xx, that I use successfully on the same computer,
with FreeBSD 9.1 or FreeBSD 8.3. This driver also gives the same error
Is there a nvidia driver that will make on FreeBSD 10.2 and support the
geforce 9500 GT. If not do you know how soon one might be available.
I have found no information about this on the FreeBSD Forum.
With no xorg.conf windows open with a default window manager, but both
monitors show the same screen. I assume that X windows is using a vesa
or some other default driver.
Thanks for any help you can give me,
