The nvidia-driver installs in $X11BASE/lib/modules to solve that I have 2 modulepaths in the files section..
I also have had the two module line. But that has no effect on the building of the nvidia-driver only the loading of the modules after they are built and installed.

So, to get the nvidia-driver to install into /usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/drivers I had to edit the Makefile found in the /Nvidia-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-9746/x11/driver. I had to change the line

DRIVERDIR= ${X11BASE}/lib/modules/drivers


DRIVERDIR= ${x11BASE}/lib/xorg/modules/drivers

to get the nvidia driver to build and install otherwise it just errored on the install.

/usr/local/lib/modules/drivers is not a directory with my Xorg build it's some type of library. Same for /usr/local/lib/modules/extensions.
