Hey Jon,
I just installed xorg and it's about the same difficulty to install as
xfree86, even with the nvidia and opengl drivers. However, with gentoo's
opengl-update, things were quite simple to fix in terms of nvidia. I also
didn't emerge the nvidia-kernel ebuild, but got the binary package directly
from nvidia.com.
