I think these diffs should cover it, not sure what the procedure is for submitting patches...

Note: I've updated this diff a few times, this version now includes libnvidia-compiler, which I think is necessary for OpenCL. I am now getting examples from the gpucomputing sdk 3.0 beta building on my system w/ the latest version of this diff.

I think the official package nvidia-utils should contain all the libraries contained in the official installer from the NVIDIA website. I really don't see a point in removing OpenCL and any other libs.

I think the transition to include these files in standard driver releases is somewhat recent, since the nvidia-utils PKGBUILD includes files in the package by copying specific filenames, it simply ignores this addition. Since as Radu notes, the default nvidia-utils package would install these files, I think it makes sense to update the PKGBUILD to include them.
