Ken, I did reply to this when you originally posted your problem, but I think 
quantum ate it!

This problem was fixed in linux-2.6.19:

commit 2722de7fed1601eb7de84f929e00776d37a4cf5f
Author: David Woodhouse <dwmw2 at infradead.org>
Date:   Sun Sep 24 23:44:57 2006 +0100

    Don't remove $(INSTALL_HDR_PATH)/install before headers_install.

Once ticket #1928 gets resolved, which should be Tuesday, with any luck, this 
shouldn't bite us anymore.
