I actually have to even if it's the default location, 
--with-moddir=/lib/modules/2.4.21/kernel/drivers/sound seems to confuse 
the configure script a bit.

What do you mean by "check for kernel version"? I'm using 2.4.21 on a 
fresh LFS system (20030603). As 2.6.0 isn't out by now, alsa being in 
the kernel tree doesn't help me much and I don't want to run an unstable 
kernel release (at least for normal use).

BTW is it true that I have to use gcc 2.95.3 for all kernel modules? But 
that isn't the source of my problem, I've tried both 3.2.3 and 2.95.3.
