The only headers which be included in 260.19.21 are the opengl headers and the 
default is to not install them:

      Normally, installation will not install NVIDIA's OpenGL
      header files; the OpenGL header files packaged by the Linux
      distribution or available from
      http://www.opengl.org/registry/ should be preferred.
      However, http://www.opengl.org/registry/ does not yet
      provide a glx.h or gl.h.  Until that is resolved, NVIDIA's
      OpenGL header files can still be chosen, through this
      installer option.

And i can't find (vdpau.h and vdpau_x11.h) or (cuda.h, cudaGL.h, cudaVDPAU.h, 
cl.h, cl_gl.h, cl_platform.h) if i extract the NVIDIA installer.

I think your plan is so good as before and the README be right.

See you, Attila
