kernel compile errors

  I just recently abandoned my own linux setup and installed debian (hamm).
  This is a pretty much stock setup -- the only thing un-debian I've done so
far is change /bin/sh to point to pdksh, but that *shouldn't* be the problem
because I've compiled many kernels with my old setup where I didn't even have
bash on the system.

  I've been having problems compiling a new kernel.  I downloaded the 2.0.35
source package, and configured it.  When I just make the kernel, it makes it
without errors, but when I try top generate a compressed kernel, it complains
about objdump (specifically "objdump: invalid option -- k"). 
  What am I missing?
This is the output of make:

# make zImage
