Try disabling linux support (a #define in nv-dragonflybsd.h) ... I'm not
100% sure that this will fix the newer version 6 of the driver, but it did
allow me to compile version 4 of the driver.
Btw, if you have an nvidia motherboard, you might also want to tweak the
probe code in nvidia_pci.c to only try attaching _your_ video card - in
my experience the driver is too aggressive in attempting to attach nvidia
pci devices other than graphics card.
You'll want to do something like -
=== root@atrens-boistault (/dev/ttypa) /usr/home/atrens
1 -> pciconf -lv
nvidia0@pci3:0:0: class=0x030000 card=0x87021462 chip=0x025310de
vendor = 'NVIDIA Corporation'
device = 'GeForce4 Ti 4200 [NV25.4]'
class = display
subclass = VGA
