I appreciate this. I'm using Gentoo (and I've checked my Ubuntu-Warty
installation and the headers are similar to those of my Gentoo boxes). I
also notice that the headers are included in separate packages and are
not simply symlinks.
And the Debian unstable headers are the same as the Ubuntu headers.

I downloaded the RH kernel headers and I notice that there are indeed
large differences (glibc-kernheaders-2.4-9.1.87.src.rpm).

I guess that I will need to use util-vserver-0.30 for now.
