2.4.17 kernel compilation

On a Debian 3.0 (testing) system updated to binutils,
I get a failure when trying to compile a 2.4.17 kernel.  The last part
of the transcript is enclosed.

ld -m elf_i386 -T /usr/src/linux-2.4.17/arch/i386/vmlinux.lds -e stext arch/i386/kernel/head.o arch/i386/kernel/init_task.o init/main.o init/version.o \
        --start-group \
        arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o arch/i386/mm/mm.o kernel/kernel.o mm/mm.o fs/fs.o ipc/ipc.o \
         drivers/char/char.o drivers/block/block.o drivers/misc/misc.o drivers/net/net.o drivers/media/media.o drivers/char/agp/agp.o drivers/ide/idedriver.o drivers/cdrom/driver.o drivers/sound/sounddrivers.o drivers/pci/driver.o drivers/video/video.o drivers/i2c/i2c.o \
        net/network.o \
        /usr/src/linux-2.4.17/arch/i386/lib/lib.a /usr/src/linux-2.4.17/lib/lib.a /usr/src/linux-2.4.17/arch/i386/lib/lib.a \
        --end-group \
        -o vmlinux
drivers/sound/sounddrivers.o(.data+0x1d4): undefined reference to `local symbols in discarded section .text.exit'

My .config file has
and all other CONFIG_SOUND_* unset.

I can compile successfully if I unset all CONFIG_SOUND*.
