User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
I am unable to build modules for this kernel. the build directory in /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 is a broken link:
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     49 Jul 17 04:49 build -> ../../../usr/src/kernels/2.6.12-1.1372_FC3-x86_64
There is also a broken link source - > build

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3.x86_64.rpm
2. Try to build any external kernel module, eg ndiswrapper, make will fail.


Actual Results:  external module (built, installed and running under 2.6.11-1.35.FC3) can not be built.

Expected Results:  extrenal module can be installed using make && make install
