Thanks Ralf, it is true that 'version.h' is among the files, several
times, although not 'build/include/linux/version.h'.

Is your recommendation then to edit VBoxLinuxAdditions.run to modify
the build path?

Or, is there some combination of environment variables or maybe other
packages that will make VBoxLinuxAdditions.run construct the path

I could certainly try to hack through it, and maybe i'll be cornered
into doing just that, buit i know my situation is not particularly

Anyhow, thanks again for your analysis, and i'm all ears for any
further steps you (or anybody else) might suggest!!
