try google have you exported our KENEL_DIR variable and it's value?

thank you I have go to the linux source dir./usr/src/kernels/3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64.
and try to run the make oldconfig && make prepare;
and the following are the output I'd like to share with you :
[robinzhu@localhost 3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64]$ sudo make oldconfig
[sudo] password for robinzhu:
scripts/kconfig/conf --oldconfig Kconfig
# configuration written to .config
[robinzhu@localhost 3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64]$ sudo make prepare
scripts/kconfig/conf --silentoldconfig Kconfig
make: *** No rule to make target `missing-syscalls'. Stop.
make: *** [prepare0] Error 2
so the command "sudo make prepare" can not pass
and what is KENEL_DIR? i typed echo $KENEL_DIR and get nothing in my system.
is that just the point to course the problem?
thank you ,your help will be greatly appreciated!
