Look like the .config or make files might be missing or changed. The kernel 
may also be improperly configured.  I couldn't tell without reading/checking 
the files (which I don't have on my machine), and this may not be conclusive.

I would suggest getting a newer kernel source and compiling from that source 
since many bugs and security holes have been fixed, and this should/would 
remove the doubt of missing or bad files.
