ok guys. I seem to resolved it...through brute force. I had to install two versions of the driver:
the stable and unstable one.
Here is what i did:
untared 0.7.8-3, failed at make, so i cd-ed to prebuilt/32 and ran
i knew i was missing wacom.(k)o, and that i can get that file only with a successfull make>make install...
so,tired of a whole day of googling and pure pain in the arse (from sitting), i untared the unstable development tarball (0.7.9-4) and compile it successfully (mith Uel's hack,which i found at a slackware forum earlier,which was for another thing,i think), so with make install,i had all the files i need from the two packages.
i tried that earlier (the two steps on the development package and it didnt work,idk why)
Now it loads,but i must see if it will after a reboot.
The reason for this whole pain is not vector itself,but the version of kernel,which is really bleeding edge enough not to be supported by current stable wacom drivers.
I guess this is a pretty dirty hack and its not worth a howto. When they officially release a stable driver supporting vec59g's linux kernel,i will reinstall it the clean way and write a how to.
Untill then,the link in the second post is a good howto+this i hope,if somebody else stumbles on this trouble.
I did lots of things before this,so i cant retrack all my steps and im not entirely sure whats needed to get a wacom running.
Maybe tomorow i will try it again on the laptop,which also has vec59g
