Run 'readelf -d driver.so | grep TEXTREL'. If there's something there then you 
would need to not-enable 'disable text relocation' in the pax options. The 
standard libGL.so from x11 is not a proper shared object, its not pic; thats 
one of the things we patch xorg for. I know ATI distributes their driver with 
the non-pic libGL.so.. but I'm not sure about nvidia.
