During XDC last week, we talked about that with an NVIDIA developer (ie.
working for NVIDIA, not on Nouveau). CUDA is a bit complex: it's not
only a library but also a toolchain. This is a lot of effort and, as a
company, they probably won't port/maintain it except if FreeBSD
customers are asking for it.

However, this developer will see if can be compiled on
FreeBSD and shipped with nvidia-driver. It could just be a matter of
enabling the build.
