I use the nvidia-driver port with xorg for my nvidia card and it doesn't cause 
problems when upgrading the base system. The only "trouble" I ever have is 
when X is upgraded. After upgrading X, I also have to re-build my nvidia 
drver. That's not a drama though, you just do do a portupgrade -f 
nvidia-driver and it's fine.
My current system started as 5.2.1-Release & is now on 5.4-p1. Even the change 
from XFree86 to didn't cause problems with the driver.
