Default 1.0-7174 for FreeBSD i386 released


* Supports FreeBSD 5-STABLE (5.3-RELEASE or later)

* Added support for the latest NVIDIA GPUs, including the
GeForce 6600 and 6200 with TurboCache(TM).

* Added support for the KSE threading libraries.
Please see the 1.0-6629, 1.0-7167 and 1.0-7174 NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Graphics Driver Set release changelogs for a list of additional changes made since the 1.0-6113 NVIDIA Accelerated FreeBSD Graphics Driver Set release.

Please note: the `nvidia-settings` utility can be built from source (available from ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/nvidia-settings/) if the binary included in the 1.0-7174 .tar.gz package doesn't work (e.g. due to a ports/ library version conflict).

Installed it on 5.4-PRERELEASE, works like a charm in abstinence of any problems. Also, glxgears reports about 1000 frames more per second. Great stuff
