Did you build your own kernel? If so, make sure that you when you call
make-kpkg, you build a kernel_image and and also the kenrel_headers.
If you have a Debian distributed kernel-image packages, make sure that
you installed the idenitical kernel-headers package. It looks as though
you may have a mismatch.
Also, once the headers are installed, go into /usr/src and execute
'ln -sf kernel-headers-<version> linux', so that the script is looking
in the correct directory.
