Default how to use the nvidia driver from ports?

ok seriously. what do you have to do to get the nvidia driver from ports to start up? i installed it from ports and it went fine with no errors, but then when i try to run nvidia-xconfig it says command not found.
im running 7.0R and the official nvidia installer doesn't work with it. I just started using FreeBSD and i dont where to find further documentation for what to do after i install the driver from ports.

help plox thx
