Hi Russ,

cc --version gives:
[root@ppstest13 openafs-1.4.0]# cc --version
cc (GCC) 3.4.4 20050721 (Red Hat 3.4.4-2)
Copyright (C) 2004 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

Do you mean blow away my kernel header files? (i.e. 
/usr/src/kernels/2.6.9-22.0.1.EL-ppc64)

I've already blown away and recreated my openafs directory multiple times.  
(Saw your note on the debian list).

regads,
Soon Wong

Hm, you're *sure* that's the version of gcc you're using?  This problem
usually occurs when you're using a different version of gcc than was used
to build the kernel that you're compiling against.

Something else that sometimes helps is to blow away the kernel tree and
recreate it.
