Driver compilation problem - Connexant PCI ADSL modem, Debian

I'm running Debian, woody, with 2.4.25 kernel. I'm trying to compile drivers for the Conexant modem using gcc 2.95.4.
I'm following a tutorial at
I'm stuck at compiling modem drivers.
I tried using driver included with that tutorial and "cleaned up" driver for kernel 2.4.20 from,
they both return same error.
Output from gcc:

                 from LnxTools.h:41,
                 from ARMAbstract.c:34:

Any ideas?
