Oh nice, I'm following cvs-commit but I missed that one. I used:
find /usr/dfports -type d -iname \*nv\*

Since I should have been looking in /usr/src I guess that explains my
sources are more up to date than I am... still learning BSD.

This is the _only_ interface I'll be able to use on the box, and it's
the only interface of this type I have, so I can't exactly test the
driver without making a cdrom/coaster.

So I guess my first step is working thorough any pix boot issues on
a standard interface/kernel then apply the new source to my nvidia
(nforce) hardware with pix boot. Can't think of an easier way.

Thanks for the info.
