And a Depends in the -source package would change nothing:
1. install -source
2. build -module
3. remove source + depends
4. install -module blindly with dpkg -i
or build the -module on system A and install on system B.
I'm not going to build kernel and -module packages on my P200 if I can
just as well, but far faster, build them on my 2Ghz amd64.
