This came up just the other day - you did check the archives right?  But
checking the archives and posting here you did do an `ls
/usr/include/linux/' to check that autoconf.h wasn't there?  It looks as
though you didn't run the "touch /usr/include/linux/autoconf.h" command
as part of the installing linux headers section.
