Greg, thanks.  I should have mentioned that *all* modules I try to
compile fail this way.  If it was one or two I would have put it down to
incompatibility with the new kernel, but in earlier rc versions of
2.6.21 (I think rc2) everything compiled quite fine.

Thanks anyways - guess I'll have to be patient.
