[SLUG] Problem compiling kernel on Redhat 8.0


Hi,

I've googled this problem yesterday to no avail I hope someone here can
help me out.
I need to compile a kernel on my Redhat 8.0 laptop but when I do the
"make bzImage" I starts compiling but after a few mins it stops with the
last few lines of code reading:

drivers/char/drm/drm.o: In function `sis_fb_alloc':
drivers/char/drm/drm.o(.text+0x12ff8): undefined reference to
`sis_malloc'
drivers/char/drm/drm.o(.text+0x130a6): undefined reference to `sis_free'
drivers/char/drm/drm.o: In function `sis_fb_free':
drivers/char/drm/drm.o(.text+0x13119): undefined reference to `sis_free'
drivers/char/drm/drm.o: In function `sis_final_context':
drivers/char/drm/drm.o(.text+0x1354f): undefined reference to `sis_free'
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1

I have tried to compile the following Kernel versions: 2.4.20,
2.4.21-pre4, 2.4.21-pre4 with the acpi patch applied from
http://acpi.sourceforge.net.

Running "rpm -qa |grep gcc" Says:  
gcc-c++-3.2-7
gcc-3.2-7
libgcc-3.2-7


Ideas anyone???


Another issue which is unrelated is when I try to do a "make rpm" on the
same sources. The error received is:

-ta: unknown option
make: *** [rpm] Error 1

Does anyone know if this option "t" was in a previous version of rpm as
the makefile is passing this option to rpm. If so what is the new option
to replace it. My rpm version is 4.1.
