Look at the Freshports page for net-im/linux-c6:
In the "Configuration Options" section there is
	NVIDIA_GL=off: libGL support via nvidia-driver
that is the default. Set this to
to add support with the nvidia driver. (Note: net-im/linux-c6 is a
meta-port, that is a collection of many other single ports grouped
together; so if you choose to compile net-im/linux-c6 with
NVIDIA_GL=on, all these ports will be compiled with this option

For net-im/skype4 there is no such option like this, but, apart that,
the port is marked as Broken
(, so it will not compile
anyway. You can use net-im/skype instead, that has the NVIDIA_GL
switch too.
