For me it is fine without a CONFIGURE option. Maybe you can add a short 
line to the description in DETAILS?

Can you take a look at the dirs used? My BUILD_DIRECTORY was 
"linux-2.6-2.6.10" instead of "linux-2.6.10-as2", so a few symlinks 
(like /lib/modules/.../build + source) pointed to the wrong dir.
