As I remember from unpacking the kernel-headers it unloads a directory
kernel-header>include> it seems to only have the 'include' directory
(I'm not sure though). Then I do: (from the nvidia-kernel)

make SYSLINUX=/usr/src/kernel-header/include/

it compiles after that (no need to compile the headers, as I didn't but
still worked). 

After all that excitement I think I also remember symlinking the
ln -s /usr/src/kernel-headers<version> /usr/src/linux

then compile the nvdia-kernel

(I can't remember much of which method I used but I assume both worked
since they seem all the same to me as it points to my kernel-headers)
