selected no. I always edit xorg.conf by hand anyway, and I never let any 
installer do any editing.

No, you don't have to. Update the kernel, and the module from the 
previous kernel automagically gets copied to /lib/modules/`uname 

This is also true for some other modules I build by hand, like rt61.ko. 
So no need to use DKMS :oD
