Dumb question: Did you do a make menuconfig/config/xconfig, or just copy over
your .config file from an old kernel? Was a make mrproper done at any time?

When you first untar a stock kernel source tree, the "include/asm" directory
does not exist in the tree. When you make config/menuconfig/xconfig, an
"include/asm" symlink gets created (among other things), linking to an
architecture specific asm header directory like include/asm-i386 or the like.
"make mrproper" destroys this symlink as part of the source tree cleanup.

So if you fail to do the make *config, or you do a make mrproper after your
most recent make *config, you lose that symlink. Thus a possible cause for
the errors you're getting.
