How do I compile madwifi on a 64-bit OS?

I am currently running Fedora 3 x86_64, I got madwifi from the CVS and was trying to compile it, but it gives the following error:

[root@localhost madwifi]# make
Checking if all requirements are met... ok.
mkdir -p ./symbols
for i in ./ath_hal ath_rate/onoe ./net80211 ./ath; do \
        (cd $i; make) || exit 1; \
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/madwifi/madwifi/ath_hal'
make -C /lib/modules/ SUBDIRS=/root/madwifi/madwifi/ath_hal MODVERDIR=/root/madwifi/madwifi/ath_hal/../symbols modules
make[2]: Entering directory `/lib/modules/'
  CC [M]  /root/madwifi/madwifi/ath_hal/ah_osdep.o

make[3]: *** [/root/madwifi/madwifi/ath_hal/ath_hal.o] Error 1

make[2]: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/'
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/madwifi/madwifi/ath_hal'
make: *** [all] Error 1
I have seen compiled form of madwifi before, but I want to compile one myself for the latest release of the linux kernel. So how can it be done?

Thank you.
