I'm wondering why apt wasn't "used" to make building the xen kernel package

Build-Depends: <what's there already>, linux-source-2.6.12

And somehow alter the buildconfigs/Rules.mk to look in /usr/src for the
kernel source? GNU make isn't my strong suit, but something like this:

# Setup Linux search path
LINUX_SRC_PATH  ?= .:..:/usr/src/linux
vpath linux-source-%.tar.bz2 $(LINUX_SRC_PATH)

# download a pristine Linux kernel tarball if there isn't one in
linux-source-%.tar.bz2: override _LINUX_VDIR = $(word 1,$(subst ., ,$*))
$(word 2 $(subst ., ,$*))

I'm not sure about the whole override and $(word,1...) stuff, that might
need to be altered. But I think the concept of what I'm thinking is clear.
