You can use:

    fakeroot make -f debian/rules.gen binary-arch_i386_none

but this is subject to change at any time.  I would not say it is
official or supported.  Anyway, it shouldn't be necessary to rebuild the
header packages as there is no ABI change and the previous version
should be compatible.  Does live-build require an exact version match?

OK, we'll include these changes in an update to squeeze.
