Yes, it is uptodate, SuSE 8.2.

I found that it goes into /simple/ only once, and that fails.

  208  cp -av .config ../
  209  make distclean
  210  l
  211  cp ../ .config
  212  /usr/bin/time make oldconfig zImage modules modules_install INSTALL_MOD_PATH=`pwd` &>log
  213  w
  214  o log
  215  make zImage
  216  rm -fv arch/ppc/boot/simple/*.o
  217  make zImage
  218  history

That makes we wonder, 'make oldconfig zImage' is different from 'make zImage'?
Must be some dependency problem.
