Did you have kernel header under /usr/include ? If you dont have it, get kernel header source first same as your kernel version.

Fix - Solution

I had the same problem and fixed it. Yes you'll need the kernel headers--I would suggest getting them from whatever your yum/apt-get/whatever package manager.

However on the make file, try including the direct path to your source as an include flag:

make -I /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18/

See if that gets you anywhere.

Had the same problem. But i need "rpm" only for rpm2cpio (what for else in LFS?) to unpack rpm's from different distro.

Found static rpm2cpio and cpio in here

It works.
