 Nvidia drivers will not install correctly from ports/meta package manager/
 or tar.gz file from nvidia's website site.

 from ports and nvidia's tar.gz it gives this error in the Terminal
 Interface, even though I have downloaded the source directly from the
 FreeBSD SVN, and the needed file is present in the directory it is calling
 for, ( /usr/share/mk/bsd.kmod.mk )


 [jdx at qax1168] /usr/home/jdx/Downloads/NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-331.20# make
 ===> src (install)
 make[1]: "/usr/share/mk/bsd.kmod.mk" line 12: Unable to locate the kernel
 source tree. Set SYSDIR to override.
 *** Error code 1

 make: stopped in /usr/home/jdx/Downloads/NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-331.20

 Error is same for both ports and nvidia's tar.gz

 Meta-package installs decently enough to provide a desktop screen , but
 nothing else.
