There are 2 versions of libnvidia-tls included in the nvidia proprietary
blob.  In the past, tls/libnvidia-tls was the one to use with Slackware.
 However something changed.  For some programs, compile will fail where
libGL can't find libnvidia-tls.

there are two "libnvidia-tls" threading models, one in root of package
and another in tls/.  Issue seems to be wth use of tls/libnvidia-tls not
being correct.  There is a tool "tls_test" but I don't know what the
exit codes mean.

As a temporary fix, I added the one in packages root to
/usr/lib$LIBDIRSUFFIX and the one in tls/ to /usr/lib$LIBDIRSUFFIX/tls

but I don't think that is correct, so I haven't posted it yet.
