Well, maybe, but if it's the only way to make sure it's the correct
version... I'm just saying that because the grsecurity patchset for the
Linux kernels uses multiple gcc plugins (shipped with the patch), which
are then built at the same time the kernel is built, and it makes sense
(at least in this case).

Indeed, you could have some dpkg-trigger for the rebuild.
