Unhappy cisco vpn client compile error

I've been trying to install Cisco VPN Client, to use in the university's wireless network.
But every time, I get this error:

Making module
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.13-mm2/build SUBDIRS=/home/microft/sources/vpnclient modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.13'

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.13'
make: *** [default] Error 2
Failed to make module "cisco_ipsec.ko".
Do I need to have some special option in the kernel config?

After poking around some more, I found that VPNC is compatible with the Cisco VPN backend. Just install that, and configure your file in /etc/vpnc/default.conf (feel free to copy /etc/vpnc/example.conf and change what you need), and you can be VPN'd! For me, strangely, the timeout has been very low, so I connect to VPN and then ping a site that's behind the VPN like "ping &" so that the connection stays open.
