On my system, this is the line that tells portage to pull in the
keyboard and mouse drivers:
INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard mouse evdev"
This line tells it I use nvidia drivers:
Nothing in my USE line that would pull them it that I can see. That
should also work on yours if you have those in your make.conf. Also,
you should get the same result if you unpack the tarball then do a
emerge --sync. This isn't in the guide but as soon as I do the chroot,
I sync and do a emerge -uvDNa world to make sure everything is up to
date. After that I get all the portage helpers, gentoolkit, eix and
friends then go back to the guide. I'm not sure I would recommend that
to be in the guide but it is how I always do it.
