yes I can do that ...  

and, btw using this option instead works :
(./configure --with-afs-sysname=i386_linux24 --prefix=/usr
--libdir=/usr/lib --bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin
--enable-redhat-buildsys --enable-transarc-paths)

I dont know.. We need to figure out what's broken with the configure... 
it's not finding your kernel headers in the right place...


PS: This probably shouldn't have left the list....

I'll cc the list.
