That part actually looks normal - his kernel has no rlim in task_struct 
and the configure test is doing its job.

This however, does not look normal in the test for signal->rlim:

 > /bin/sh: scripts/mod/modpost: No such file or directory

Looks like it can't find modpost.  All the kernel configure tests are 
probably failing.
