Compiling 1.3.20

Hi there!

I got a problem when compiling kernel 1.3.20. In the file ksyms.c I get:

ksyms.c:272: warning: initialization from incompatible pointer type
ksyms.c:274: initializer element for `symbol_table.symbol[60].name' is not constant
ksyms.c:275: initializer element for `symbol_table.symbol[61].addr' is not constant

This is repeated for many other source code lines.
My system: Kernel 1.2.0 gcc 2.7.0 libc 5.0.9
When configuring the kernel, I said the new kernel should support ELF and it
should be made as an ELF binary.
Is this enough information...?

Thanks for any hint!
