As Jeremy says, there is a x11/nvidia-driver port which pulls in the most
recent drivers. Overriding it should be fine.

Oh, I tried just copying the x11/nvidia port in /usr/dfports and added my
patch to it, but that didn't override the port (well, it did, but compiling
didn't work, lots of make errors). Is the format of dfport makefiles
somewhat different?
