Problems compiling 2.6.26 kernel package on NSLU2 (Slug)

I'm getting rather frustrated trying to compile a new 2.6.26 kernel package for ARM (ixp42x) on my NSLU2. I need to upgrade as the stock 2.6.18 kernel does not support the cell modem I am trying to set up my slug as a gateway/router for.

I downloaded the following files from my friendly neighbourhood Debian mirror:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 7447271 Oct 26 18:13 linux-2.6_2.6.26-10~snapshot.12356.diff.gz -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5813 Oct 26 18:13 linux-2.6_2.6.26-10~snapshot.12356.dsc
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 61818969 Oct 26 18:14 linux-2.6_2.6.26.orig.tar.gz

Then, following http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Debian/BuildImage as a guide, and after dpkg-source -x'ing the .dsc, I did the following:

# fakeroot make -f debian/rules.gen setup_arm_none_ixp4xx >> ../kernel-build.log 2>&1
# cd debian/build/build-arm_none_ixp4xx
# make ARCH=arm menuconfig
# (here, I configured kernel options)
# fakeroot make -f debian/rules.gen binary-arch_arm_none_ixp4xx >> ../kernel-build.log 2>&1

The kernel merrily built its way along for around 24-36 hours, then puked. The tail -30 of kernel-build.log is as follows:

I have virtually no clue how to debug this. The last few lines say that the build process was working on the 'vmlinux' module... but 'vmlinux' refers to the kernel itself, not a specific driver, correct?

My only idea is that possibly the kernel was trying to build ax25 support into the kernel (and if so, it should be disabled anyways; I don't need ax25 support, and thought I disabled it) when it puked... But I could use any help I could get.

Any help that you could provide on debugging this issue would be greatly appreciated. Aside from removing ax25 support and trying again, I have no idea how to continue...
