NVIDIA has nothing to do with Gentoo packages, as for 290.10 drivers you can download them freely from NVIDIA's ftp server: x86 x86-64

There are two annoyances with them though: they don't compile under Linux 3.4 or newer and they don't support server 1.10. Patches to compile them against Linux 3.4 can be found on this forum, as for server you have to run it with Option "IgnoreABI" "true".
