Hi,
I've just noticed that the xorg-server-1.4-r1 is available and it does not want nvidia-drivers.. Is it just a temporary "problem", since it is masked by ~x86 keyword, or are big changes being made to the xorg-server?

The ABI changed and is allegedly not fully compatible compatible with the current nvidia-drivers. Nvidia will catch up eventually. Some people are reporting success using X with nvidia-drivers by using
Code:
startx -- -ignoreABI
. See this thread.
