If you are missing something in Debian, first look in the WNPP bug list
(work needed and prospective packages), for details see

In your case a bug was already filed for AMD:

Current blocker is the license which does not seem to allow
redistribution. If you can help clarifying the license issue, that would
be great!
Packaging scripts are already there, see the above bug report.

For the other vendors, could you post some URLs? Or even better open
some RFP bugs (see the WNPP page for details) and add the pseudoheader
    X-Debbugs-CC: pkg-nvidia-devel at
so that we are aware of it. I can probably handle the packaging.
