Subject2.2.20-pre11 compile error

When compiling 2.2.20-pre11, I get the following error:

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.2.20/arch/i386/kernel'
cc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.2.20/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.2.20/arch/i386/kernel'
make: *** [_dir_arch/i386/kernel] Error 2

The cause appears to be the following change in arch/i386/kernel/process.c:

error = do_execve(filename, (char **) regs.ecx, (char **) regs.edx, &regs);
if (error == 0)
- current->flags &= ~PF_DTRACE;

Any suggestions as to a fix? This is a libc5 system (5.4.46).
