Enable DRI and/or GLX in your Xserver, and load your proprietary driver modules if your card manufacturer doesn't support open source drivers.

In the particular case of Nvidia cards, you can emerge nvidia-kernel and nvidia-glx. Then make sure DRI is disabled, GLX enabled, and you're using the "nvidia" device (not "nv") in your XF86Config file.

nvidia-kernel insists on installing kernel-gentoo first so if you're using a different or custom kernel, the first install will fail. You can make it use your current kernel sources if you nuke the "linux" symlink it creates in /usr/src and re-link it back to your own sources. Then run emerge nvidia-kernel again.
