Default Xorg Screens & pkgsrc Help

I need some help getting my screens working properly. I am however unsure if my graphics card is supported.

Ok, so my current situation is that Xorg as it will not configure properly if the NVIDIA GPU is the present graphics driver. Xorg will complain that the screens cannot be found and configuration failed. This is circumvented as my desktop motherboard has a built-in ASPEED VGA driver which when used instead, Xorg will configure and i can run the GNOME Desktop Environment under NetBSD.

Is there a way to configure the Xorg manually when no config has been created?
And is my NVIDIA 570GTX graphics card supported under the xf86-video-nv driver? or can i use the FreeBSD x64 NVIDIA driver provided by NVIDIA?

Finally my last issue is with pkgsrc, i cannot seem to make pkgsrc save the pkg_path even though i have followed the instructions in the NetBSD guide.

Can someone provide me with the instructions on how to save the PKG_PATH directory, so you don't have to keep re-entering it everytime you start a new session.
