ALSA should be look in /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build not /usr/src/
linux.   This is the Linux Approved Way.  And with the 2.6 kernels, the
headers are being included in the individual packages instead of all in
the kernel-source package which a) makes things a lot simpler and b)
makes it so that you don't have to install krenel-source just to build a
kernel module.
