I am running 2.4.20-100
Output of la /usr/lib/libGL* is :
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 2003-09-08 22:23
/usr/lib/libGL.so -> libGL.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 2003-09-08 22:23
/usr/lib/libGL.so.1 -> libGL.so.1.0.4496
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 423476 2003-09-08 22:23
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2003-04-20 17:49
/usr/lib/libGLU.so.1 -> libGLU.so.1.3
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 702207 2003-03-17 15:40
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 2003-09-08 22:23

This looks perfect (and identical to your output) to me.
BTW, did you notice my remark about /var/log/XFree86.0.log ??
In there, I see the message :
(EE) [GLX]: Failed to add GLX extension (NVIDIA XFree86 driver not found)
I think this must be the cause of the problem, but what to do about it ?
The driver installation process went all-right as far as I can judge.
