First, update your ports tree. This is what you are looking for:

Port:   nvidia-driver-195.36.15
Path:   /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver
Info:   NVidia graphics card binary drivers for hardware OpenGL rendering

Al;l of the relevant paths, etc. were in the first post I sent
regarding this matter. The "173" and other drivers are deprecated and
should probably be avoided. If you have one of them installed, do a
"make_deinstall -dfv nvidia*"   first before attempting to install the
new drive and utilities.

If you are still experiencing problems, post back.
