I'm guessing that you are trying to use the hhl-kernel* package.  This
is the generic kernel source; it's really only used to build the
target-specific packages.

You really should be using one of the LSP (Linux Support Package) RPMs.
These include the .hhl files (which configure the kernel build
architecture and cross development tools) and an appropriate default
configuration.  I don't think we have an 860CLLF LSP, but the mbx860 or
linuxplanet configs should be close.

Everything is include in the LSP; you don't even have to have the
hhl-kernel RPM installed to build a kernel for an LSP.
