This might be because of the changed patch. We are trying to use one patch
that properly builds most (all) 2.4 kernels, but it is becoming harder and
harder over time.

If you just want to build klips as a module, without patching the kernel tree,
you should be able to do:

make KERNELSRC=/usr/src/linux module minstall

I am not sure if Michael or Ken can tweak the patch so it works with 2.4.21 as 
well as the more modern 2.4 kernels.
