Default 6111 drivers "make mrproper" bug

Some people have been having compile troubles with the new 6111 drivers and Mandrake 10 (does this happen with other distros?

Here: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=34772

It seems that the nvidia-installer in the NVIDIA-Linux-6111 drivers has been changed. My hackish fix is to use --extract-only on the 6111 drivers and an earlier driver (I used 6106). Then copy the nvidia-installer file from the resulting 6106 driver directory and overwrite the 6111 nvidia-installer file.

cd to the 6111 directory and do ./nvidia-installer with your normal options you usually use when you "sh NVIDIA-Linux-*.pkg*.run" files.

Worked for me...
