from the nvidia documentation :
.....
 Since the Linux kernel does not support a binary driver interface, we
    provide for rebuilding these files on the target machine (or 
distribution)
    and then linking with the binary version of the NV kernel driver.

        $ make

    This will produce one of the following files depending on the system
    include directory used to do the build:

        NVdriver:      which is the installable kernel driver module for
                       single processor Linux systems

    If you want to build NVdriver for a system other than the compiling
    system, then you'll need to run the make as:

        $ make SYSINCLUDE=/src/kern/my-smp-kernel/include

    to generate an NVdriver that will work on the kernel whose include
    files are in /src/kern/my-smp-kernel/include.  This kernel must
    have been completely configured (make menuconfig dep).
.....

i hope this helps
