Default Am I missing something or the docs might be outdated or incomplete?

According to:
http://us.download.nvidia.com/freebs...ppendix-c.html

i should have some control over the AGP capabilities of the installed AGP graphics card and host-bridge respectively ...

I did follow the instructions described in:
http://us.download.nvidia.com/freebs...hapter-09.html

and went as far as removing the agp module from my kernel configuration:

Code:
root@inferna:~ # grep agp INFERNA
#device         agp             # support several AGP chipsets
root@inferna:~ #
yet still:

Code:
root@inferna:~ # sysctl -a | grep nvidia.agp | wc -l
       0
root@inferna:~ #
I do have a:

Code:
hw.nvidia.registry.NvAGP: 1
so I guess the card is using the the NVIDIA AGP driver ... Doom3 runs like silk at 60FPS with seta r_mode "7" and seta r_multiSamples "16" ...

and I do have the hw.nvidia.registry.x, hw.nvidia.cards.n and
dev.nvidia.n entries .. but no agp entries whatsoever.

What am I missing here?

PD.: just in case .. agp is out of the kernel and is not beign loaded at boot time.

Code:
[gonzalo@inferna ~]% kldstat
Id Refs Address    Size     Name
 1    9 0xc0400000 4dd878   kernel
 2    1 0xc08de000 7559b0   nvidia.ko
