1) Trying to set group/user on install is evil. It shouldn't be the 
   default, as this option will fail when you build as non-root  

2) When using "--without-user --without-group", it tries to install with 
   user/group of no/no. Needless to say, this fails.

3) It has prototypes of lseek64/basename which are incompatible with 
   glibc. Use "-DGNU_SOURCE -O2" for CFLAGS and enjoy.

4) It shouldn't look in /usr/src/linux for the linux kernel sources - 
   look at /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build. Also, the current running kernel 
   doesn't necesarrily (or for people who package it, almost certainly 
   doesn't match) what you build it for.
