the nvidia .run file gives an option to setup the xorg configuration file automatically.... when using emerge nvidia-drivers it does not touch the /etc/X11/xorg.conf, and renders x unstartable.... why doesnt the ebuild check or xorg.conf and if not there run the xorg modifications to load the module?

Because the whole nVidia xorg.conf generation is an obsolete nonsense, just a four-line xorg.conf will do.

The four lines xorg.conf is given here:

If you don't want to create it manually, the nvidia-xconfig tool will generate xorg.conf for you.
