error loading a kernel module, "compiled using gcc2"

I have a third party kernel module that i am using to access my hpna network.

The problem is that when I try to load it, I get the message " The module you are trying to load (/lib/modules/2.4.22-ck2/kernel/drivers/net/hpna/il.o) is compiled with a gcc version 2 compiler, while the kernel you are running is compiled with a gcc version 3 compiler. This is known not to work."

If I do a gcc -v I get gcc version 3.2.3 20030422 Gentoo Linux 1.4 3.2.3-r2 propolice

I have made clean the module sources and am sure that I have compiled both the kernel and module using the same gcc version?

Any ideas?
