How will that help. It is actually trying to create a file under
/usr/src while being called as a non-root user. fakeroot won't
magically allow that...

But as others have suggested the same thing, I am going to give it
a whirl... I'd still be interested on why this would make it work...

what??? this must be a joke? /usr can be mounted read-only!

I'd prefer not to have to do this. I know it's an option. Else the
danger exists that I get stray module trees, or that the module tree
might not be in sync...

How are other people doing it?
