O.K, this is strange. I was hoping to avoid such messy links and running 
--list on the installer indicated it installed everything into /lib and 
32-bit compat libs into /lib32. However, running ldd on nvidia-installed 
gives the same No such file, until I linked /lib64 to /lib. Then it lists the 
libs used are in /lib, but the loader in /lib64/ld-linus-x86-64.so.2?

The installer then runs, but doesn't print any spaces(?), fails to down-load a 
driver so it tries to build one and gets the same no vmap() error? and grep 
tells me:

root at john:/home/john# grep -R "vmap()" /mnt/lfs/sources/linux-2.6.16-rc4/*
/mnt/lfs/sources/linux-2.6.16-rc4/include/asm-arm/cacheflush.h: * 
flush_cache_vmap() is used when creating mappings (eg, via vmap,
/mnt/lfs/sources/linux-2.6.16-rc4/include/linux/vmalloc.h:#define VM_MAP       
0x00000004       /* vmap()ed pages */
/mnt/lfs/sources/linux-2.6.16-rc4/mm/vmalloc.c: *       vunmap  -  release 
virtual mapping obtained by vmap()
/mnt/lfs/sources/linux-2.6.16-rc4/mm/vmalloc.c: *       which was created from 
the page array passed to vmap().

So it still looks like a kernel incompatibility issue. Do you think I should 
as on lkml? (-;

Think I'll try nVidia first.
