With Gentoo you need to to run "eselect opengl set nvidia"
after you install the drivers. They print out something
about this in the install log when you install the package.

Rant: One of the reasons I don't like the Gentoo MythTV 
ebuild is because it allows you to use "use" flags which
build a MythTV which won't run properly, but the package
maintainer asserts this is acceptable because there are
two lines in the hundred+ of lines of boilerplate output
which tells the user that the package they just compiled
and installed won't run properly. Gentoo's mysql install
is the same, if you upgrade from 3.x to 5.x it tells you
to uninstall 5.x and install 4.x, run a bunch of commands
manually, then install 5.x and run a bunch of commands

I don't know what is up with Knoppmyth, but Pekka is probably
right about the OpenGL headers not being installed in the
standard location.
