That's pretty weird. I am not aware of any misconfiguration that would easily spit
that out, but that doesn't mean much. Where did you get the kernel source? If you
have a good net connection, I would recomend rsync'ing with Paulus' stable tree (or
BenH's tree if you are running a Pismo or iBook). Check the LinuxPPC list archives
for a lot of good information on rsync (http://lists.linuxppc.org).

Hmm.....something is definately odd with the paths somewhere in the make scripts...
If you don't feel comfortable checking out and finding where the problem is, I would
get a new tarballs of the source.
