Subjectvmlinuz no symtab? while cross compiling...
I'm attempting to cross compile linux-, along with a few external 
modules (madwifi, hostap-driver, aodv-uu). The kernel and (built-in)
modules compile fine, but compiling every one of those external modules
fails around MODPOST. For example, aodv-uu:

<snip userspace stuff>
make -C /home/janderson/var/autobuild/i386/root/usr/src/linux
SUBDIRS=/home/janderson/var/tmp/autobuild/aodv-uu-0.8.1 modules
i486-linux-uclibc-gcc -Wall -O2 -DCONFIG_GATEWAY -o aodvd main.o list.o
debug.o timer_queue.o aodv_socket.o aodv_hello.o aodv_neighbor.o
aodv_timeout.o routing_table.o seek_list.o k_route.o aodv_rreq.o
aodv_rrep.o aodv_rerr.o packet_input.o packet_queue.o libipq.o icmp.o
min_ipenc.o locality.o

modpost: vmlinux no symtab?
/bin/sh: line 1: 798 Aborted scripts/mod/modpost -i
vmlinux /home/janderson/var/tmp/autobuild/aodv-uu-0.8.1/kaodv.o
make[2]: *** [__modpost] Error 134

madwifi and hostap-driver do the same thing: "vmlinux no symtab?".

I've messed around with cleaning out the scripts/mod directory, then
running a make prepare (which seems to rebuild modpost), but that makes
no difference.

For the moment, I can work around this (because I'm "cross compiling"
for i486 on an i686 system) by just running make again in the kernel
directory, but I would assume that wouldn't work when I have to do it
for ppc. :-)
I guess I'm just looking for any information that might help me get rid
of this error. Any pointers would be most welcome.

(Hopefully this is the right place to be posting such questions - if
it's not, then I appologize.)
