Sid, thanks to your hints, I was able to build the kmp successfully (even with the patch applied; while not mandatory, it may improve driver behavior, if your CPU has the PAT feature).
The problem was within my nvidia-kmp spec. To be honest, I'm using and tried to build the factory kernel for my main system also (still running 10.2), and wanted to build the nvidia driver without previously booting the new kernel..
OK, I have always used the packages direct from the nvidia download site. I wasn't even aware nvidia-kmp existed. Regards Sid.
Well, creating them was, ähem, time consuming.. In the hope, they're useful for somebody else, or even someone getting around to create a BS project (if possible), I've attached the specs and the my-kernel-module-subpackage, which is necessary, if you have more then one kernel package installed, otherwise the kmp package name and dependency tag names get mangled in some silly way.
I must confess, I didn't check, if nvidia-x11-driver install/unistall works with factory, thus some feedback is welcome. If you're going to fix them, send me the fixes in unified diff format, please.
