 It looks like you are trying to install x86 drivers.  10.0 is 64 bit.
 Secondly Nvidia drivers are already included in the base system of PC-BSD.
 If for some reason they weren't selected during install you may just want
 to add them using the package manager in control panel.

 There was an issue with the Nvidia driver missing some libraries.  If you
 are experiencing that issue follow Kris' instructions to your email on the
 testing list by doing the following:

 # fetch -o /usr/local/sbin/pbi_info
 # chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/pbi_info
 # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/pbid restart
