Oh the joys of binary drivers.

I awake from a peaceful slumber after a portupgrade to find that
I suddenly no longer have X. The playful and exciting words
dance across my colourless and tormented screen:

(WW) The NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro GPU installed in
(WW)      this system is supported through the NVIDIA Legacy
(WW)      drivers. Please visit
(WW)      http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html for more
(WW)      information.  The 1.0-7667 NVIDIA driver will ignore this
(WW)      GPU.  Continuing probe... 
(EE) No devices detected.

The NVIDIA Legacy drivers magically fail to exist on the NVIDIA
site and there appears no be no port for them either.

Please advise, good sirs, of what this dweller of CrappyOldGPULand
should do.
