well, it's clearly a bit more complicated than that.  right now if I'm
correct debian/rules will only build the package if headers for all
flavours in an archictecture are present.  Any errors and it misfires.
this makes kernel building somewhat labour intensive (need to build all
kernel flavours + all header flavours then install them then run

At least that's how it appears to me.
