You may want to try out:
I am not sure if it will work, but I guess it is worth a try. Just untar
that tar file somewhere and use it as a ordinary port.

Joerg has made the same changes and pushed them up to the guy who has
created the driver, but they don't seem to have been integrated into a new
FreeBSD port yet.

Let me know how it goes.
