nvidia-settings has seen a lot of changes following the 304 series
driver development. It's not recommended to have these two not in sync.

nvidia bundles prebuilt binaries of nvidia-settings and nvidia-xconfig
with their binary driver, but these are not used by our packages,
instead we build the binaries ourselves from the source nvidia releases.
Unfortunately that way we can show a huge source code diff ... that
would have been hidden (and ignored) if we used the binaries from the
blob ...
