OK -- I *am* dumb.  Now that I'm using the right directory, it's still
complaining:

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your
running
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]
/lib/modules/2.6.3-2.1.246/build/include
 
The kernel defined by this directory of header files does not have the
same
address space size as your running kernel.

...this is very odd, since I just re-installed the kernel package.

Would the fact that I'm running an Athlon XP cause this?  I don't think
so, but I'm running out of things to blame besides my own stupidity.
