well that's only partially true though.  if any thing changes
those headers (like updating the kernel source or doing a make clean),
you lose the ability to insert and possibly even compile your
modules.   what i'd suggest, since this package is already made 
the debian way, is to do a make-kpkg kernel_headers, which produces a
package with the kernel headers inside it that you can install just
like everything else.  as a note, i always make-kpkg binary, which
makes source, headers, doc and image packages.
