    Looks like the m-a on ubuntu is either behaving differently than the
    Debian one, or I introduced a regression in -4. Either way that's
    Debian package specific, I'm looking into it.

    That's a bit strange, but probably not too surprising given that
    there's almost certainly a version mis-match between the output of
    various autotools involved -- the Debian package uses a run of
    autoreconf -f -i, which updates quite a lot more than just configure

    You might have more luck with the -3 package for now, -4 introduced a
    few changes designed to streamline providing binaries for all the
    pre-build kernels shipped in Debian, which could have broken m-a. I'm
    looking into it :)
    
    DKMS support is also on my TODO list before squeeze ships.
