Linux- build failure

I am trying to upgrade an LFS 5 system so that I can build an updated 
LFS 6.5 system. However the compile fails with this output.

MODPOST vmlinux.o
WARNING: modpost: Found 5 section mismatch(es).
To see full details build you kernel with:
GEN     .version
CHK     include/linux/compile.h
dnsdomainname: Host name lookup failure
UPD     include/linux/compile.h
CC      init/version.o
LD      int/built-in.o
LD      .tmp_vmlinux1
ld:arch/x86/kernel/ parse error
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

Current kernel is linux-2.4.22-openmosix-2, if that helps. I've googled 
around and haven't found anything. I can't get this kernel to compile 
and I'm not sure why.

Thanks in Advance,
