You mentioned 96.43.14. I looked into the ftp server and found 96.43.16, too, there. But both tar.gz's could be extracted by FreeBSD tar. What is happening there?
96.43.14 is the latest official since I upgraded from 6.0-CURRENT November 2004 to the February 1, 2010 9.0-CURRENT and got ports/x11/nvidia-driver compiled and installed except it was the wrong version and it told me to goto http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html
to get the 96.43.xx driver which is what I did. What exactly did you disable in nv-freebsd.h or how exactly is it done?
