There's the problem. You're changing the directory that *should* be
coming up by default. This is the directory of the *"running"* kernel,
not the sources, and it's /lib/modules/2.6.4-54.5-smp/build/include on
my machine (SuSE 9.1 with the latest YOU kernel). Whatever you've done
in the interim may change that. Look for what it should be exactly, but
it will be whatever is in /lib/modules/<version>/build/include.
