Is there any reason you're not using the latest driver? It's up to 
169.12 now (x11/nvidia-driver) 

Did you remember to update the nVidia driver port /after/ everything
else? If not, it's possible, depending on what other ports you upgraded,
you've got GL and GLX libs from somewhere other than the driver port. 
Try uninstalling and reinstalling it.
