Do you have linux-headers-2.6.12-1-powerpc installed ? And have you set KSRC
to /lib/modules/2.6.12-1-powerpc/build ? 

Anyway, linux/usb_input.h is not one of the installed headers it seem, but
then it also doesn't seem to be available in the 2.6.12 kernel sources :

$ ls include/linux/usb*
include/linux/usb_cdc.h  include/linux/usbdevice_fs.h
include/linux/usb_gadget.h  include/linux/usb_otg.h
include/linux/usb_ch9.h  include/linux/usb_gadgetfs.h  include/linux/usb.h

So, i guess your appletouch driver is somewhat outdated.
