Are you building it on a 2.6.x host ?

I'd suggest that you should probably build it on system with a similar level of kernel so that the build tools will not be so far out of date.

That sounds like an incomplete build - possibly caused by partial compilation due to errors (as in having the BusLogic drivers configured for use, but not getting compiled/linked for some reason).

You might try saving your configuration, then doing a "make mrproper" to clean out any possible leftover crud. Copy the configuration file back, then start with a "make oldconfig" and then follow the usual procedure.
