ML403: module make fails with interesting error

  I created an NFS disk using devrocket 2.03, copied the kernel image from a
devrocket build to the system.ace.  I booted the ml403 board and did an nfs
mount.  I copied the kernel directory created under the devrocket
2.03kernel project into /usr/src/linux

  I created a simple module:
root at ml403:/home/moduletest# cat moduletest.c

#include <linux/kernel.h>
#include <linux/init.h>
#include <linux/module.h>

MODULE_DESCRIPTION("Test Kernel Module");
MODULE_AUTHOR("wade maxfield (maxfield at");

static int moduletest_init_module(void)
        printk( KERN_DEBUG "Module moduletest init\nHello World!\n" );
        return 0;

static void moduletest_exit_module(void)
        printk( KERN_DEBUG "Module moduletest exit\nGoodbye Cruel World!\n"

   This has compiled under RHEL 4.0 and worked.

   if I go do a build on the ml403 board I get the following (ignore the
time problems)
root at ml403:/home/moduletest# make
make: Warning: File `Makefile' has modification time 1.2e+09 s in the future

    I think that "fixdep" was created as x86.  Any suggestions as to getting
fixdep to be powerpc executable?
