I think I've run into a snag and would appreciate a ruling from one of the administrators. The license file states:

The package from NVIDIA does some linking and possibly compiling. Does this mean I've modified the binaries
and can not submit them to the repository?
No separation of components sounds like I can't separate out the documentation, development files, etc.
There is a library that interferes with the proper operation of the package. The way I read it, deleting it is
not an issue.
Gathering up the files it installed and packaging them doesn't sound like it's an issue either.
