The main developers of DKMS are on the linux-poweredge at dell dot com
mailing list.  They would be able to help shed some light on this.

Only if you use DKMS as is.  But if you take it as a starting point
(i.e. what Mr. Rugolsky suggested) and make its output not an
installed module but a kernel-module-whatever RPM then end users
wouldn't need the development packages.

I guess the question is whether DKMS can be so modified and if so
whether the result would be better than whatever other solutions
people have come up with.
