problem configuring for a mips platform

While trying to configure the 2.4.7 kernel for cross compilation to a new
mips platform I get the following errors;

> ls
COPYING MAINTAINERS REPORTING-BUGS drivers/ init/ lib/ scripts/
CREDITS Makefile Rules.make fs/ ipc/ mm/
Documentation/ README arch/ include/ kernel/ net/
> make ARCH=mips xconfig
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-mips asm)
make -C scripts
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/nicbrown/cross/linux/scripts'
gcc -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -c -o tkparse.o

tkcond.o tkcond.c
gcc -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -c -o tkgen.o tkgen.c
gcc -o tkparse tkparse.o tkcond.o tkgen.o
cat >> ./
./tkparse < ../arch/mips/ >>
-: 364: unable to open drivers/message/i2o/
make[1]: *** [] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/nicbrown/cross/linux/scripts'
make: *** [xconfig] Error 2

Is this a bug, or am I missing something. This is in a freshly un tarred
source directory. Do I need to edit anything or add more to the make command?
