finding glibc-static-devel for mandrake linux 9.1 for modules-init-tools

I am trying to install a 2.6.x kernel and I need to install modules-init-tools. I need to install the glibc-static-devel package in order to get past the error message:

gcc -g -O2 -Wunused -Wall -o insmod.static -static insmod.o
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lc
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [insmod.static] Error 1

I looked on the CD's and coulld not find it. THe FAQ for Modues-init-tools says the file libc.a is needed. I installed the package that it was a part of but the error remains. I tried to 'urpmi glibc-static-devel' but the package was not found. Any help would be appriciated.
