Taken to another system?

The problems I remember:

1. the "source" and "build" links pointed to an incorrect place. An
invalid build link is a problem.

2. If I actually changed the source to make the base supplied
linux-headers package not good enough, I found no way to generate a
complete one (linux-headers-2.6.18-6 vs linux-headers-2.6.18-6-686).

Doesn't work well if you want to allow building stuff on other
computers :-(

This is to say that I got spolit by how well 'm-a a-i' works.
