Mmmm... Best check that you have actually got installed all that you
need to have installed.

Typically, you will also need a few compiler tools such as bison and
others. Look to see if the autoconf complains about anything when you
try a "make".

But meanwhile, very good and exciting it is to go kernel compiling...
But what is it you're trying to fix with the compile?

(Still try the compiling, it's a great to know you can tweak the way the
kernel is put together! :-) )

Good luck,
