it's been awhile since I used gentoo, but when I was using it I never used portage to install the nvidia driver, I liked the nvidia installer better. you could try to get the nvidia driver of your version from nvidia's site, extract it, and copy the NVIDIA-xxxxxxx/usr/include/GL directory to /usr/include, or get the mesa source package and copy the includes from it to your /usr/include.

do you have the nvidia libs installed? the nvidia installer installs a gl lib and symlinks everything back to it. here is mine:

$ ls -l /usr/lib | grep GL
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 653 2005-04-17 10:22 libGL.la
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 2005-04-17 10:22 libGL.so -> libGL.so.1*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 2005-04-17 10:22 libGL.so.1 -> libGL.so.1.0.7174*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 485260 2005-04-17 10:22 libGL.so.1.0.7174*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 2005-04-17 10:22 libGLcore.so.1 -> libGLcore.so.1.0.7174*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 7626156 2005-04-17 10:22 libGLcore.so.1.0.7174*

you have no libGL.so.1.0.7174 ( the nvidia opengl library). you will have to install a working nvidia install.
