Neither; you are :-)

You're supposed to point linux-wlan-ng to the headers of the kernel
you're running. If that kernel is a prepackaged kernel, you'll want to
install the right kernel-headers package and point the linux-wlan-ng
sources to that kernel; if it's not a prepackaged kernel but instead one
you compiled yourself, you need to show linux-wlan-ng the toplevel
directory of your kernel sources.

In the case of linux-wlan-ng, you can do that by running "make config"
in the toplevel source directory (or by running the configuration script
