I updated my ports tree and applications installed in my computer last 
night, however, after that, Xorg complains some errors in 
/var/log/Xorg.0.log when I start X:

I have reinstalled the x11/nvidia-driver and rebooted my computer many 
times but errors remain there. So, did I miss something? Thanks.
