Editing blacklist.conf is a road filled with pain.  Don't edit the
files shipped with Slackware unless there's no good alternative;
that makes upgrades and such *much* easier.  That being said, I
*think* the binary driver from nvidia installs a blacklist file 
for you, and if so, then our build script needs to do so as well.
However, we do *not* need to use the same filename as the one that
ships in /extra.
