Slackware64-current missing kernel headers?

Greetings slackers! As part of my mad quest to dual-boot my new machine with Win7 and slackware64 on (fake)raid 0; I need to install slack onto another drive (no big deal) and compile a kernel with the appropriate dmraid patch. Also not a huge deal, I hope. But it seems I can't compile any kernel at all, because the newly installed slack64 system is missing its kernel-headers.

'make config' or similar results in errors of this type: 'asm/socket.h: No such file or directory', etc.

/var/log/packages contains no kernel-headers (I did the FULL install). And no wonder -- the package doesn't seem to be in the slackware64-current tree either? What am I missing here, slackware scholars?

It's in there. Change mirrors.

Thanks, that was it! It never occurred to me that some of the mirrors might be incomplete.
