Bug#225671: linux-kernel-headers: please consider making target directory configurable on build time
linux-kernel-headers places the headers in /usr/include, which is fine
for a sarge or sid system. On woody, however, this makes
linux-kernel-headers uninstallable if one doesn't want to update glibc
(which is usually exactly what you want to avoid when using
Some packages need more recent kernel headers to build (for example,
devmapper). To help backporting these packages, it would be a good
idea to have an option to build a linux-kernel-headers package that
doesn't conflict with woody's libc6-dev.
This would be more easily possible if there were a debian/rules option
to set the target directory from /usr/include to /usr/include/foo.
Please consider adding that option to ease backporting efforts..
