it is?  maybe with the 2.6 kernel, but on my current FC1 system, if i have 
an installed 2.4 kernel binary rpm, then the symlink 
/lib/modules/<kernel>/build points at where the kernel source tree would 
*normally* exist -- that is, under /usr/src.  if the kernel source is not 
installed, that link exists but points at nothing.

is this different with 2.6?  (sorry, i'm not at a system i can test this.)
are you saying that if i have no 2.6 kernel source tree, then the file 
version.h will exist under /lib/modules?  does that mean that build is no 
longer a symlink?  what's going on under that directory?
