x11/nvidia-driver is the master port that contains all the build info
for installing all nvidia drivers. When you build from
nvidia-driver-340 it sets two variables and then uses the master
Makefile to do all the work. You can work with this to make
nvidia-driver install the version you want.

Add the following to the make.conf for your poudriere build - see man
poudriere under customisation for info on make.conf file names. You can
also add it to /etc/make.conf for manual port builds.

.if ${.CURDIR:M*/x11/nvidia-driver*}
