Problem Building L4ENV for L4Linux 2.6.10

Dear L4 Hackers,

    Following the instructions on the L4Linux website, I did a cvs checkout of

  l4linux-2.6 and l4linux-2.6-env

Then, following the "Building" instructions, I cd'd to the l4
directory and typed in
"make config", I then selected "Paths and Directories" to /root/drops
(I had previously
created /root/drops as an empty directory, and chmod'ed it to:  chmod
777 drops).
I exited "make config", selecting the "save configuration file option.

Back in the l4 directory, I then typed in "make".  It ran for several
minutes, and finally
failed trying to assemble oskit10/kern/x86/pc/i16/i16_real_int.S.  The error was
on line 64.

Shown below is command used to assemble this file, and the llines
following it, from
the output of "make":

gcc -c -o i16_real_int.o -MD -DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -DOSKIT_X86

I checked everything out of CVS on  2/27/2005, PST (i.e., Loa Angeles,
California, USA time).

I am using Fedora Core 2 Linux.  The following is the output from
"cat /etc/fedora-release":  Fedora Core release 2 (Tettnang)

The following is the output from "uname -a"

Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.5-1.358 #1 Sat May 8 09:04:50 EDT 2004
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

The following is the output from running oskit10/config.guess:

At the time I did all of these things, I was logged in as root, with
root privileges.

Any help / suggestions will be appreciated.  Thank you.
