Question ATI fglrx module+2.6.0-test9 compile problem

All attempts to compile ATI modile for 2.6 kernel finish with the folowing error:

|#| ./ ~/work/ati/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
ATI module generator V 2.0
probing for VMA API version...
patching 'highmem.h'...
skipping patch for 'drmP.h', not needed
skipping patch for 'drm_os_linux.h', not needed
doing Makefile based build for kernel 2.6.x and higher
Makefile:51: *** mixed implicit and normal rules. Stop.
build succeeded with return value 0
duplication skipped - generator was not called from regular lib tree

here is the output of make -d:

|#| make -d ~/work/ati/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6.x
GNU Make 3.80

2.4 works fine, but no gart drivers work under 2.4 on this computer.

the system is debian unstable, with debian's 2.6.0-test9 package.
