I have
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  1756 30 Oct 09:13 e1000phy.patch
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  15730 30 Oct 09:13 nfe-20060905.tar.gz
which I think are for 6.1 which i can email you if you want to risk

1) I am bad and will hack your box
2) there is some innate stupidity in using them.

The e10000phy.patch is for Marvell 88E1000 PHY variants, don't know 
what's on your board.

I use i386 but I don't think there were separate versions for 64 bit
