libGL/fbConfigs problem launching Linux 3D application

Hi all, I have a FreeBSD 11.1 box with linux-c6 and the latest nvidia drivers. glxgeras runs fine and so does (accelerated) webGL under Chrome and Firefox. There's a problem with running native Linux 3D applications.

libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
I did some googling, and found two suggestions:

1. libGL.so points to the wrong thing(s) or is ambivalent. But since there are so many libGL-related files on the system now, I don't know which one(s) to pick and how to do it properly. Does anyone have a clue what I should do?

2. alternatively, there could be something wrong with my xorg.conf, which is just the standard xorg.conf that came out of nvidia-xconfig. I have been told not using any xorg.conf is recommended, however my x server won't even start without it ("no suitable nvidia driver found").
