FC3 Kernel build fails

Maybe I'm just doing something stupid... but here goes:

I have completed installation of FC3 and like a lot of folks out there I am having issues with the Nvidia riva module and need to nuke it so the updated nvidia driver for my GeForce FX card can be installed. Why they included this kernel module in the default kernel is anyone's guess but the riva cards are about as common these days as smallpox...

Anyhoo.. on to my issue:

So I trundle on into /lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667/build and make a copy of my original .config (.config.orig) and then do make clean and then make oldconfig to construct a .config from the current, loaded kernel.

I then make xconfig and deselect the riva nVidia module and save. So far so good.

Then I do the following:

# make bzImage
CHK include/linux/version.h
SPLIT include/linux/autoconf.h -> include/config/*
CHK include/asm-i386/asm_offsets.h
/bin/sh: arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.s: No such file or directory
UPD include/asm-i386/asm_offsets.h
mv: cannot stat `include/asm-i386/asm_offsets.h.tmp': No such file or directory
make: *** [include/asm-i386/asm_offsets.h] Error 1

Any ideas?
