fglrx compiling custom module problem (firegl_public.c)

When getting my debian system to work, I needed to install the ATI fglrx drivers to use my Radeon 8500. I have the 2d working fine, but I need to compile the fglrx kernel module so that I can use the hardware acceleration. This is what I get when i run

ATI module generator V 2.0
patching 'highmem.h'...
probing for VMA API version...
doing script based build for kernel 2.4.x and similar
compiling './agpgart_be.c'...
compiling './agp3.c'...
compiling './i7505-agp.c'...
compiling './nvidia-agp.c'...
compiling './firegl_public.c'...

./firegl_public.c:2189: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
./firegl_public.c:2189: for each function it appears in.)
./firegl_public.c:2189: `dev' undeclared (first use in this function)
./firegl_public.c:2189: parse error before `)'
compiling failed - object file was not generated

Is this a problem with my system? ... it seems to me that its ATI's fault... any suggestions are welcome
