Compiling 2.3.18

I have no success at compiling (actually just doing make dep) the
2.3.18 kernel source I downloaded from (I think
it is from Dave's source tree). I am getting the following error:

make -C sound fastdep
make[4]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.3.18.embedded/drivers/sound'
.depend.69: *** unterminated call to function `wildcard': missing `)'.
make[4]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.3.18.embedded/drviers/sound'
make[3]: *** [_sfdep_sound] Error 2


There is no function `wildcard' in any files, except for Makefile.

I tried with different .config files, including the default file created
by make xconfig.

I downloaded 2.3.18 from and I am able to compile
(after fixing one of the file).

Could it be a problem with Dave's tar (as for fadsrom.tar)?

I am targetting a board with an MPC8xx, does the source from the
embedded tree at better than the one from
cutting edge (if I can compile it !!), i.e. it there required
stuff that only appears in the embedded source tree?
