You should download a current release of the linux kernel.  Don't use
the one that comes with ELDK.

in arch/ppc/platforms/4xx/xparameters/xparameters_ml403.h.  If you're
using the ml403 reference design, it is already there.  If you're
using a custom design then you'll need to replace it.

See here for hints:

This is an old release of ELDK.  You should probably move up to a more
recent release.

You're using an ancient copy of u-boot that breaks with certain
versions of the 'make' program.  You should try using a recent release
of u-boot.  Alternately, you can hack the u-boot makefile to not build
the examples directory.
