Is the path to those libraries really important if ldconfig knows where to find them?

I put them in /usr/lib/nvidia-current because they belong to the nvidia-current package and, thanks to the new alternatives system that I implemented, each driver can have its own libraries that live in separate directories so that nvidia-current, nvidia-96 and nvidia-173 can be all installed at the same time. According to which one of them you choose the use, ldconfig will point to the directory where the libraries for that driver are located (i.e. /usr/lib/nvidia-current, in this case). Of course this is not particularly useful in this case, as only 1 driver supports vdpau.

As regards libvdpau_${driver}.so.1, good point, I forgot to add a link. I'll fix it.
