Hmm... sounds like you skipped the previous steps on that same page 
(chapter05/kernel-headers.html),  which involved creating a proper 
linux/version.h and moving the appropriate kernel headers 
to /tools/include.... (Following those steps as written would have 
created /tools/include/linux before you got to the autoconf.h bit).
Try checking that.
