You are trying to build the kernel package ? not just some modules ? Maybe the
backports.org, they being unofficial packages, are just broken and outdated.
Please just grab linux-source-2.6.15 2.6.15-7 from unstable.

I guess that if you intent to build your kernel, you are big enough to know
that "you need to include" translate in adding a -I flag to gcc :)

Its called linux-image, and no, i don't mean backports.org, just grab the
official etch/sid kernels (2.6.15-7) and install them on your sarge machine.
This is what i do, with a rebuilt yaird, on both my powerbook and my always-on
pegasos machine, works just fine, except for the udev problem.

Well, on my powerbook the only things that i saw that cause problems is that
pbbuttonsd doesn't aknowledge keyboard strokes as activity, only mouse
movement, but it could be something else, as pbbuttonsd also from time to time
go into low-power-screen mode and refuses to go out of it.
