If you've downloaded the source tree via tarballs you'll
probably need to download /usr/src/Makefile as well.
Hey - anyone for putting /usr/src/Makefile into a subdir
and making /usr/src/Makefile just include it - that way
people who use tarballs avoid this? :)
Thought for : Loathing the way "Don't cry for me Argentina" has
the day : been bastardized by Madonna into a 'disco' song.
