	Umm, are we still talking about having make-kpkg doo something
 feasible?  The original suggestion was to make it build the -all
 packages; that does not call build. the source package does not need
 things to be configured. The headers packages doo , because it would
 not make sense for them not to.

	Well, garbage in, garbage out.  You can' get anything correct
 out of a kernel build if the arch is wrong; and make-kpkg
 can't yet do magic or read minds.

	No, since kerel headers are useless without running oldconfig.

	Uh, what?
