Oh OK. Not that the XEN feature does anything either way under normal
use. I always stick with the debian kernels. They work, why waste time
building my own. I did enough of that in the past.

You either have a umask set for your root user, or you have strange
unusual sgid or suid flags set on some directory in /usr, /usr/src,
or /usr/src/modules, or you manually extracted the nvidia-kernel sources
as another user. If you did any of those, well don't, since that breaks
things and isn't a supported setup.
That directory should be drwxr-xr-x root src in every case I have ever
Check the permissions and ownership of /usr, /usr/src and
/usr/src/modules. They should be:
drwxr-xr-x 19 root root 4096 Apr 21 11:08 /usr/
drwxrwsr-x 26 root src 4096 Apr 21 19:25 /usr/src/
drwxrwxr-x 11 root src 4096 Jan 4 2007 /usr/src/modules/
