i was about to compile linux-2.4-benh (fresh tree fetched via rsync)
when errors occured:

make[3]: Entering directory

~                 from defkeymap.c:6:
warning: type defaults to `int' in declaration of `__kernel_fd_set'
warning: data definition has no type or storage class

line-wrapping sucks, heres the full log and more info:

i was told the 2.4-benh tree could fix some PReP annoyances (sp?) too,
so i wanted to try it out.

Thank you for your time,
