Additional info:

I'm trying to compile a no-module no-frills kernel for use as a dns/sendmail
box.  The -3 kernel compiled fine, but I'm trying to use -4 for the ext3 errata.
 This is from a clean, no changes kernel-source rpm, copied from /usr/src to
/usr/local/src.  I'm running menuconfig, make dep, make bzImage.

Comment 2 Donald Maner 2002-05-22 00:01:57 EDT
Found problem.  I was pointed to the whole binutils thing by a helpful soul in
#kernelnewbies, and used Keith Owens' script to find the offending object in
char.o.  Script from

It was in wdt_pci.o, and for some reason the watchdog stuff wasn't showing up in
menuconfig.  I had to pull it out of my .config manually. Aparantly it was set
to Y  by the redhat config in configs/
