Subject2.6-test11 kernel gives ppc build error

I have been lurking on the list for about a month, and am obviously a
newbie at this.

I have been running a 2.4.22 kernel for a while, but was hoping to move
up to 2.6 for a variety of reasons. I have a minimal 2.6 kernel
running, but when I try to add sound support for my apple g3 powerbook,
I now get an error linking vmlinux

Right now I am getting an ld error
LD .tmp_vmlinux1
drivers/built-in.o(.text+0x2ff6c): In function 'start_request':
undefined refrence to '__udivdi3'
drivers/built-in.o(.text+0x2ff6c): relocation truncated to fit:
R_PPC_REL24 __udivdi3
drivers/built-in.o(.text+0x2ff84): In function 'start_request':
undefined refrence to '__umoddi3'
drivers/built-in.o(.text+0x2ff84): relocation truncated to fit:
R_PPC_REL24 __umoddi3

make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

I am using benh's ppc source with yellowdog linux 3.01 on an apple G3
powerbook (pismo)
Other than some 'defined but not used' warnings, the compile was pretty
clean: for example,

CC [M] sound/oss/dmasound/tas3004.o
sound/oss/dmasound/tas3004.c:332:warning 'tas3004_read_register'
defined but not used

I'm assuming that the 20 or so 'defined but not used' can be safely
ignored as either old code no loonger used or new code not yet used,
but what about the umoddi3, udivd3? Are they powerpc instructions or am
I missing a C math library somewhere?

I'm supposing that I should not try to use any kernel generated by ld
that resulted in errors... 8-(

Thanks for any help that you may give!
