Yeap, I know that. My question was more on the lines: "shoud I give
feedback on this or do you guys know it doesn't really work" :)

For the main package I used the debian build system (dpkg-buildpackage
-b -us -uc) and installed the resulting deb.
For the modules they were build during install.
I've DKMS installed on this system, but i dunno if it was used to
build the modules.

I can take a look on the build log latter and see if I can give you
guys better info on what happened.
