Unhappy Installer fails with 2.6.5-bk1

Hi. I noticed a thread that the installer fails (or actually the driver fails with 2.6.5-mm). The problem I have is that the driver fails to build with 2.6.5-bk1. I hoped that it would (possibly) be an error, but after trying to build it twice, I downloaded a fresh version of NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run and trying to install it (again twice), it fails to build. The error message I get in /var/log/nvidia-installer.log is:

Default Re: Installer fails with 2.6.5-bk1

I just dont understand why you want to use the nvidia driver with releases like that, turns out the stable releases work fine and you should know they are testing builds.
