Subject: iproute2 & iputils fail to compile

	While building a new machine, I ran into troubles getting the above 
packages to compile.  They are being compiled against a 2.4.22 kernel 
source tree.  I thought the BUILD doc used to say that a 2.2 kernel 
tree was required to build user land, but the latest BUILD doc says a 
2.2 or 2.4 kernel will work.  Is a 2.2 kernel tree still required to 
build user land?
	Both packages are returning the same error messages.  I've included 
the relevant parts of the iproute2 build log below:

+ make KERNEL_INCLUDE=/usr/include 'CCOPTS=-pipe -march=i386 -
mcpu=i686 -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -Wall 
-Wstrict-prototypes -D_GNU_SOURCE'

Bad exit status from /usr/src/world/tmp-work/rpm-tmp.20124 (%build)

These are the only two packages that failed (besides the arch 
specific ones).

Any help would be appreciated.
