I finally got it to work with the snd_ich driver, which is loaded at 
boot with:


in /boot/loader.conf, and:

device          sound

in the kernel. Just in case anyone else is trying to get sound to work 
with the same board ... currently using 5.3beta6. Here it is in dmesg:

# dmesg | grep pcm
pcm0: <Nvidia nForce2> port 0xd000-0xd07f,0xe400-0xe4ff mem 
0xed080000-0xed080fff irq 5 at device 6.0 on pci0
pcm0: <Avance Logic ALC650 AC97 Codec>
