 kernel source code (or using a standard out-of-tree build).  It takes two
 optional arguments:
-  make headers_install ARCH=i386 INSTALL_HDR_PATH=/usr/include
+  make headers_install ARCH=i386 INSTALL_HDR_PATH=/usr
 ARCH indicates which architecture to produce headers for, and defaults to the
-current architecture.  The linux/asm directory of the exported kernel headers

 is platform-specific.

 The command "make headers_install_all" exports headers for all architectures
 simultaneously.  (This is mostly of interest to distribution maintainers,
 who create an architecture-independent tarball from the resulting include
 directory.)  You also can use HDR_ARCH_LIST to specify list of architectures.
