Okie dokie...

First off the install went flawlessly so i dont think it was a bad install or anything...

eed:$ ldd /usr/X11R6/bin/glxgears 
/usr/X11R6/bin/glxgears: => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x2807a000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x28104000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x2810c000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x28119000) => /lib/ (0x281da000) => /usr/lib/ (0x281f0000) => /lib/ (0x28215000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x282ec000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x289fe000) => not found (0x0)

So it seems is in fact not found.. locate does not find it --- so how can i install it without installing over the Xorg files with LibGL ?

Try the following:
ldd /usr/X11R6/bin/glxgears

And provide the output.

Mine gives the following:
/usr/X11R6/bin/glxgears: => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x28085000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x2810f000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x28116000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x28123000) => /lib/ (0x281e2000) => /usr/lib/ (0x281fd000) => /lib/ (0x28221000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x282fb000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x28a0d000)

Note that it's looking for in /lib/.

Next, you might want to find out where (and if) you actually *have* in your system - if your location db is up to date, `locate` will tell you.  If that gives no output, try `locate`.

Also, since you're using (Free)BSD(?) 6.0, you might want to make sure
the OS installation went right, and that you've got the latest and
greatest of the 6.0 branch.

Of course, you might also want to search the -current mail list for
similar issues as well.
