and do not forget that some distributions *smile*
have separate packages for kernel headers, which
are installed in /usr/include/linux and /usr/include/asm
and usually those include files do not match with
any (read vanilla) kernel ...
in this case, you could rename the directories
in /usr/include/ to linux.orig, asm.orig and
create symbolic links to the kernel include files
# ln -s ../src/linux/include/linux /usr/include/linux
# ln -s ../src/linux/include/asm /usr/include/asm
