Steps:
1. Remove all mention of DRM from your configs and delete the kld_list line
from /etc/rc.conf
1. deinstall/delete *ALL* packages
2. Get a copy of the /usr/ports directly that is recent
3. Build /usr/ports/X11/nvidia-driver-390 from source as follows:
     (optional) cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portmaster
     cd /usr/ports
     rehash
     portmaster X11/nvidia-driver-390
4. Add to /boot/loader.conf:
     nvidia-modeset_enable="YES"
5. Reboot
6. Reinstall whatever other X stuff you want (after verifying that
nvdia-modeset is loaded)
