I get my downloads from here:

These are the original NVidia BLOBS, which have to be compiled first to get a
working driver. The problem are the binary RPM packages for OpenSuse with no
need to have a C development system installed.


Unless it has changed recently, openSUSE nVidia RPMs were building KMP
during installation, so they required enough development environment to
create kernel modules as well.

It is true that before that - very long time ago - they were provided as
binary. I think it was changed due to licensing reasons (restriction on
redistributing binary drivers).
