X != nvidia driver. Can you please try a fresh, from scratch nvidia driver
Solved it. Confirming the driver was installed correctly I tried glxinfo
which also segfaulted. Google turned up a very informative thread about the
issue which pointed to a bug https://bugs.gentoo.org/350336?id=350336
This is an issue with nVidia drivers >= 260.19.21 and the requirement that
/tmp be mounted with exec.
Solution was : mount -o remount,exec /tmp
