[SOLVED (Found AUR pkg)] Trying to manually install Catalyst 13.2 Beta

According to the release notes, there's supposed to be a 300% pefromance increase in Catalsyt 13.2 Beta.  I'm interested in that for obvious reasons but I can't find a 13.2 beta in the AUR or in [testing] so I'm trying to install it manually.  I downloaded the installer directly from AMD but it fails with this message in the log:

Supported adapter detected.
Supported adapter detected.
Check if system has the tools required for installation.
fglrx installation requires that the system have kernel headers.  /lib/modules/3.7.5-1-ARCH/build/include/linux/version.h cannot be found on this system.
One or more tools required for installation cannot be found on the system. Install the required tools before installing the fglrx driver.
Optionally, run the installer with --force option to install without the tools.
Forcing install will disable AMD hardware acceleration and may make your system unstable. Not recommended.

I do have the kernel headers installed but the file it's looking for doesn't exist.  I checked it manually.  I tried symlinking /usr/src/linux-3.7.5-1-ARCH to /usr/src/linux per the wiki but that didn't solve anything and my googling the problem has turned up empty.

Try catalyst-test from the AUR:

Oh wow somehow I missed that AUR package, thanks.  That works though for some reason Serious Sam 3 doesn't work with 13.2.  It works with 13.1 and even with the open source driver (though that only gets like 3FPS lol).  Maybe I should make a seperate thread about that though...
