	And see this from the Makefile:

# Starting with version 1.0-7667, NVidia has dropped support for
# numerous "legacy" GPUs.  Consult NVidia README (the Appendix) to
# find out whether you need to use legacy driver version and install
# one of corresponding `x11/nvidia-driver-71',
# `x11/nvidia-driver-96', or `x11/nvidia-driver-173' slave ports.
