	There was a posting within the last 24 hours on one of the
FreeBSD mailing lists that pointed to a post indicating nVidia is
working on native {i386, amd64} drivers.  The post was dated
November 5th; it provided no expected release date beyond "when it's
done".  My personal _estimation_ would be "when 8.0 ships, or soon
after".
