This seems silly. The kernel source that a /usr/include/linux symlink  
points to does not necessary have any relation at all to which kernel is  
actually running, and in fact *will* be a different version on very many  
Linux boxes.

If dosemu relies on the /usr/include/linux to find out about the current  
kernel, then this is a bug.
