make xconfig fails. This has been the case with every version of
uClinux since I have been working with it. I imagine (as has also been
the case with all other version) that this is only the first of
several failures I will run across. Configuration is for GDB and
ARMULATOR. Linux 2.6 kernel, armnommu, default all settings. See
failure mode below:

I have 'fixed' this in past versions, but I'm not sure it was the
proper fix and I have always thought a regular maintainer would fix it
the right way. Also, since I have yet to get any uClinux kernel to
build and run, I can't say if any patch I submit would not create more
issues than it solves.
