Please note that you don't actually need to modify debian/rules.  Simply
set the KSRC environment variable to the location of the kernel source.
For example, the following works from the command line:

	KSRC=/usr/local/src/linux debian/rules binary-modules

The "?=" in debian/rules means that KSRC will be set to /usr/src/linux
if and only if it has not already been set.  A KSRC environment variable
will override this.
