Compiling the kernel: error with "make mrproper"

This is my first time trying to compile the kernel (2.6.3-7mdk) and I get this error right at the first step:

# make mrproper
.__modpost.cmd:1: *** missing separator.  Schluss.
What does that mean? I didn't change any of the source files, not even the makefile, btw.

Sounds like whoever packaged up 2.6.3-7mdk made a boo-boo. Has anyone else had problems with this kernel source? Perhaps try a different source package.
