	Having taken a look at the nVidia site it seems that the FreeBSD
video driver is probably essentially the same as the Linux one (the
documentation keeps saying Linux), but the CUDA stack is a completely
separate product only available for Windows, Linux and Mac. Possibly the
Linux one might be persuaded to work.

	As for OpenCL that would need documentation that nVidia chooses not
to publish.
