Compiling 2.0.38 kernel


I am running the latest sid and I'm trying to compile a custom 2.0.38
kernel for use with smalllinux on an ancient PS/2 386 with 4 megs of RAM.
(The default won't do because it doesn't have support for ESDI drives.)

Anyway, I'm running into a problem.  I can't seem to run a make or even
make dep without running into errors.  I've tried using gcc272 and even
altgcc, with the same problem.

Okay, so here's what happens with a fresh tree:

$ make dep

It always dies under drivers/char no matter what compiler I use.

Anyone have any pointers for me?

Thanks a lot!
