It doesn't work.  There are no DragonFly binaries from nvidia.

I personally cannot wait for there to be a good open-source driver for AMD 
cards, now that the specs are open, hopefully Xorg will have a 3D driver for 
some of the higher performance models within a year. Then Im buying an AMD 
card, and dumping nvidia. my perfectly good 6600GT has been sitting almost 
unused in my box for the last 2 years since I started using DragonFly, except 
in Windows when I play games. Not that there are many games for *nix but CF 
would be quite nice.

Isn't DragonFlyBSD missing alot of stuff though for 3D? I mean, has the 
drm and agp stuff been updated? I think the last time I tried to get 3D 
working that stuff wasn't available. It's been a year since I tried, so 
maybe that has changed since then.
