Fonts not configured in fonts.o/kernel compile

I'm trying to rebuild my kernel with ivtv/video4linux support built in. I've downloaded the modules and copied my config file from the previous compile. I've got make dep to run correctly, but when I try to build the bzImage, I'm getting the following error:

make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-99/drivers/video'
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-99/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-unit-at-a-time -pipe -msoft-float -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=athlon -nostdinc -iwithprefix include -DKBUILD_BASENAME=fonts -c -o fonts.o fonts.c
fonts.c:64:2: #error No fonts configured.
make[3]: *** [fonts.o] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-99/drivers/video'
make[2]: *** [first_rule] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-99/drivers/video'
make[1]: *** [_subdir_video] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-99/drivers'
make: *** [_dir_drivers] Error 2

I know I need to configure something, the problem is I don't know what. Anyone out there gotten this to work?

(Further information - I'm trying to build a module for ivtv which allows me to use my Hauppage WinPVR 250 to do some hardware video encoding - you know home made video recorder...)

Thanks in advance,
