Hi, sorry if this popped up before. It is a redhat 7.3 box, gcc 2.96.
this happens when I include devfs into the kernel.

See below:

make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.5.30/fs/partitions'
  gcc -Wp,-MD,./.check.o.d -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.5.30/include
-Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer
-fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -pipe -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2
-march=i686 -nostdinc -iwithprefix include -DKBUILD_BASENAME=check
-DEXPORT_SYMTAB -c -o check.o check.c
