madwifi fails to 'make'


I'm having a really hard time with madwifi, even after having it working fine in Slack 9.1 with my Netgear WG511T card. Ever since I installed Slack 10 I haven't been able to get it to build properly. I haven't downloaded a new version but I don't think there is one.
Here's what I'm getting for errors. If anyone can help me get this working I would really appreciate it.

Errors:
In file included from /madwifi/hal/ah.h:49,
from /madwifi/ath_hal/ah_osdep.c:58:
/madwifi/hal/linux/ah_osdep.h:102:1: warning: "abs" redefined

make[2]: *** [_module_/madwifi/net80211] Error 2
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 1

As far as I know, everything I need in the kernel is there and I don't even know if that has anything to do with what's wrong here.

Thanks in advance!
