Comment 1 Ben Kohler gentoo-dev 2013-09-03 22:12:56 UTC
Check your build.log, I believe it will contain this blurb:

Gentoo supports kernels which are supported by NVIDIA
which are limited to the following kernels:

You are free to utilize epatch_user to provide whatever
support you feel is appropriate, but will not receive
support as a result of those changes.

Do not file a bug report about this.
Comment 2 Tom Wijsman (TomWij) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-09-03 23:03:22 UTC
(Quoting Doug Goldstein from bug #447566 comment #56)
> It is and has always been Gentoo's policy to support what NVIDIA supports. The current versions of the drivers do not support 3.11. You are more than welcome to use the capabilities of epatch_user (which are present in all the ebuilds) to make the changes yourself but they do not go into the main tree.
