[OpenAFS] OpenAFS-client Module Fails (Debian-Sarge)!!!

Is supposed generate headers from /proc/config.gz which is the .config file
for the running kernel.
Sometimes this gets the headers in sync with the kernel. Sometimes not.

I didn't think kernel-headers was enough to build OpenAFS. Am I wrong on
that? (I noticed a while back that the openafs-client documentation doesn't
really say a lot about this, and I can get that updated.)

Yeah, module-assistant rocks. I should start using that myself; I just
discovered it a few days ago.
