Common misconception. The NVidia drivers are NOT written for Linux. The only reason the NVidia driver has a dependency on the Linux emulation on FreeBSD is to provide accelerated graphics for Linux binaries. It is NOT required for the actual driver to work. If you don't use Linux binaries you can actually switch this option off and the driver will continue to work without loss of functionality.Freebsd have emulation of library linux... run for example xorg with nvidia drivers, the drivers are writted for linux.
