Bug Description

It's accidentally found when doing a scripting installation.

To generate the issue:

1. export ARCH="amd64" or ARCH="x86_64"

2. apt-get install nvidia-current (or fglrx that uses DKMS)

This will cause the DKMS built failed. (for all module version with all kernels available in repo).

Error log in /var/lib/dkms/*/make.log
