The build target version is something special, and rarely needs to be 
used. The only port we use it for is virtualbox, since it needs to 
compile its kernel module on 7.2 and later only.

In this case, you would leave it unset, and it'll compile on the default 
build environment (7.0, 8.0 & 9.0), which means users of later versions, 
I.E: 7.1, 8.1, 8.2, will still be able to run the same PBI file and have 
it work.

BTW, your new module looked just fine now. I've already committed it to 
subversion, and we should
see a new PBI get built for each platform in the next few days:


64bit Build Server:

32bit Build Server:
