Errmm I patched it with

[root at abe linux]# patch -p0 < patch-2.5.8-dj1.diff

and now it does this :-/

[root at abe linux]# make xconfig
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts kconfig.tk
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.5.8/scripts'
gcc -Wshadow -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -c -o

gcc -o tkparse tkparse.o tkcond.o tkgen.o
cat header.tk >> ./kconfig.tk
./tkparse < ../arch/i386/config.in >> kconfig.tk

make[1]: *** [kconfig.tk] Error 1

[root at abe linux]#

So I guess it's not my day.
