I think they are building from the kernel-source-*.i386.rpm, which for
some reason is not good enough (it should build but apparently it does
not). As they are not running redhat they cannot preprocess the .src.rpm
to get a "valid" tarball with all the needed stuff.

I don't have problems with that but I have no way to signal new versions
to them.
