2.3.99pre4 make problem

  Just downloaded the pre4 source and started build from scratch:

deathstar:root> make menuconfig
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts/lxdialog all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4pre4/scripts/lxdialog'

make[1]: *** [lxdialog.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4pre4/scripts/lxdialog'
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2

  Some part of the Makefile should create the header, or it should not
be used. I think it's an empty file, I used touch to make an empty one
and the error went away. All other references to it are gone.


  The Internet is not the fountain of youth, but some days it feels like
the fountain of immaturity.


1. Upgrade to 2.3.99pre4

Hello, everyone.  I attempted to make the Linux user's first rite of passage,
which is compiling a kernel.  I followed everything to the letter in the HOWTO,
and had no problems up until the 'make zImage' step.  At this point, it goes
completely through, with no errors until the end.  At the very end, I get the
following errors:

     make[3]: *** [inode.o] Error 1
     make[2]: *** [first_rule] Error 2
     make[1]: *** [_subdir_umsdos] Error 2
     make: *** [_dir_fs] Error 2

Doing 'make zlilo' gives me the same errors.  What am I doing wrong???
