Alright, I'll give that a shot. In the meantime, the compile died again, 
slightly different error:

make[2]: *** No rule to make target `../m', needed by 

Also, if it helps, I really don't want to build a kernel. I basically 
want just the bare minimum to be able to use this as a distcc node for a 
computer with a GCC version similar to what is above (3.2.2).

Thanks for your help so far.
