The May snapshot FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE-200705 appropriately has no xorg, but after
a portsnap fetch, pkg_add -r xorg successfully (it runs) installed xorg 7.2. 
However trying to build nvidia-driver from ports fails with:

===> x11 (install)
===> x11/driver (install)
install: /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers: No such file or directory
*** Error code 71

Stop in
*** Error code 1

/etc/make.conf WITH_NVIDIA_GL=yes per Florent seems to make no difference either

# florent says must use for nvidia-driver with 7.2

Also have a symlink:

ln -s /usr/local /usr/X11R6

Likely there's something I'm not understanding, but this should be a
relatively vanilla install which isn't working.  Clues appreciated.
