FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT/Xorg 7.2: nv driver without OpenGL?

Hello List.
I run into a problems after upgrading a box from FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE/i386 
with Xorg 7.2 to FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT/i386 with Xorg 7.2.

Stellarium 0.8.2 as taken from the ports is frequently used by my 
department to produce some scenic pictures and Stellarium ran quite well 
on my box on FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE and Xorg 7.2. After changing OS to 
FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT/i386 and recompiling everything Stellarium quits 
working immediately after startup with this error message:

[ This is Stellarium 0.8.2 - ]

Warning: Couldn't set 1024x768 video mode (X11 driver not configured 
with OpenGL), retrying with stencil size 0
Error: Couldn't set 1024x768 video mode: X11 driver not configured with 

This happens with every resolution I try to start the application.

I checked the nv-X-driver for my nVidia graphics board and realized it 
isn't built with OpebGL support anymore as it was/seemed to be 
previously (Stellarium ran quite well prior to the OS change).

Does anyone have a clue?
