Are you running xorg-7.2?
If so copy the attached file in the same directory containing NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-100.14.11 and run bunzip2 patch-driver.bz2 && patch < patch-driver.
BTW the last driver has been committed in the ports tree, you could try it.

File Type: bz2 patch-driver.bz2 (503 Bytes, 266 views)
