Tried it, still the same. No successful build with nvidia-driver active.

You actually do not need to have nvidia-driver installed to reproduce the 
problem. It seems as if having nvidia's headers is enough. I put a tarball of 
them up on my server 
You just have to replace the system headers with those and run the SlackBuild. 
(backup the original ones!)
