The problem is not to prepare nvidia-cuda-toolkit on the buildd for

but having nvidia-driver and a real nvidia card while *testing*.

Nvidia team has already addressed the autobuild issue. In my fuzzy
memory only two steps are required to build cuda version of software
(in the contrib section) on our buildd: 1) b-d on cuda and set
XS-Auto-Build: yes ; 2) register the package in the whitelist by
mailing wanna-build. See devref for detail.
