The problem actually _is_ the hosting/distribution. Noone - including
packman - is too interested in distributing pre-built nvidia rpms and
thus flirting with gpl violation.

What about doing something like we do with fetchmsttfonts?

ie, a "package" that retrieves the sources needed, has dependencies for
development tools, and a script that builds and installs the driver for
those who want/need it?
