The only thing that needs to be typed after extracting the (kernel) tar.gz file is: make
The same for the GLX package. After it you ofcourse need to edit XF86Config(-4).
CN_ I see you never installed the kernel module from tar.gz. The makefiles don't require all that autoconf stuff like configure since nvidia made their own horrible Makefiles.
(perhaps you used deb src packages from apt or src.rpm's)
