[pkg-nvidia-devel] Bug#445075: nvidia-kernel-source: gcc-4.1 is needed by the makefile but is not depended upon

reassign 445075 kernel-package
severity 445075 wishlist
retitle 445075 Please Depends: on the used compiler in linux-headers-*
When a linux-headers-* package is created with make-kpkg, it doesn't depend on
the used gcc compiler as official packages do. This makes module building
fail when the needed compiler is not there anymore
