Ah, all right. I misunderstood your intentions, I thought you were packaging
some kernel module (as this would have been ontopic on -devel ;-) )

Hm, in this case I would perhaps grab kernel-source-2.4.26 (*),
copy /boot/config-2.4.26-$WHATEVERARCHVERSION to .config in that directory
and make oldconfig. You might need to do a make dep, I don't know. Then you
can use kernel-source-2.4.26 to build against.
This is untested and comes without warranty, good luck ;-)
(*) Yeah, I know I told you to take kernel-headers instead but I was lead be
false assumptions on your intentions ;-)
