I don't know whether this is an oversight on my part dating back a ways,
or whether it's a relic of something else.  I may have missed them
originally because they are located in x11, not x11-drivers, and then
gone to the nvidia website and downloaded a driver.

I found the ports drivers last night but can't test due to the
other problem I asked about regarding xmlto (docbook.xsl issue) not
working in the devel/dbus (via xorg or x11/nvidia-driver) build.
