I've just downloaded the dri-7.4.4,2.tbz from this link :

and the driver is NOT included in the unpacked /lib/dri folder.

As I said, I had to copy the r600_dri driver from a working PCBSD 9.0 
system to make my ATI HD 4850 work.

kind regards,

System information:

AMD phenom II X4 on Asus M4A77T/USB3 mainboard
4GB ddr3
Asus ATI 4850

FreeBSD 9.0 amd64
with blackbox window manager.
