Default nvidia settings

make: *** No rule to make target `src/libXNVCtrl/libXNVCtrl.a', needed by
`nvidia-settings'. Stop.

seems nvidia settings has a problem with xorg 7 imake. See:
I'm running x86 with modular Xorg and xorg-cf-files-0.99.3 and noticed
that /usr/lib/X11/config/host.def is empty. After copying a host.def file from
a Xorg 6.8.2-r6 installation, xmkmf -a generated a working Makefile that would
allow libXNVCtrl.a to be built. I haven't looked at why an empty host.def is
being made though or why it would be causing a broken Makefile.
any help is appreciated. thanks.

Do you have this problem with the official .tar.gz package (ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/nv...ngs-1.0.tar.gz) or Gentoo's ebuild? The file src/libXNVCtrl/libXNVCtrl.a is shipped with the `nvidia-settings` source package.
