lm sensor 2.9.0 compilation errors

I use slackware 10 and trying to install lm sensor 2.9.0.
I have installed i2c-2.9.0 with out any problems I think.
But when I try to "make" the lm_sensor I get errors:

kernel/busses/i2c-ipmi.c: At top level:
kernel/busses/i2c-ipmi.c:54: error: `I2C_ALGO_IPMI'
undeclared here (not in a function)
kernel/busses/i2c-ipmi.c:54: error: initializer
element is not constant
kernel/busses/i2c-ipmi.c:54: error: (near
initialization for `')
kernel/busses/i2c-ipmi.c:61: error: `I2C_HW_IPMI'
undeclared here (not in a function)
kernel/busses/i2c-ipmi.c:61: error: initializer
element is not constant
kernel/busses/i2c-ipmi.c:61: error: (near
initialization for `')
kernel/busses/i2c-ipmi.c: In function
kernel/busses/i2c-ipmi.c:183: warning: `return' with a
value, in function returning void
make: *** [kernel/busses/i2c-ipmi.o] Error 1

Is there a problem with my i2c 2.9.0 installation or with my lm_sensor makefile?

most probably, there's a problem with the code. Try looking in kernel/busses/i2c-ipmi.c, line 183, and see if it looks ok. If it's the latest version, look for a bug report on this, or file one yourself. If not, update.
