2.4.18 and 2.4.19 appear to be very different beasts.  I've had no problem
compiling my own versions of 2.4.18.  I recently tried
kernel-source-2.4.19 with a config from a 2.4.18 Debian kernel and got the
same error as the OP.  At the time I thought I was just doing something
wrong (which it appears I was).  I believe the key is in the config file
though, a basic diff of the two configs lists quite a few changes.
