nvidia-xconfig will create a usable xorg.conf that will include the nvidia driver and, in addition, will add other options that can be specified on the command line.
Example: nvidia-xconfig --depth=30 --output-xconfig=my-xorg.conf
This xorg.conf will also merge in options that may already be present in your existing /etc/X11/xorg.conf
|| Name Version Architecture Description
i nvidia-xconfig 331.67-1 i386 X configuration tool for non-free NVIDIA drivers
I track the testing distribution, use only the nvidia drivers packaged by debian and have no problem at all using OpenGL applications like flightgear. My xorg.conf includes outputs from nvidia-xconfig as well as other options I added manually.
