I'm a bit worried by the -C argument. If this is really a kernel thing,
everything I've said below is bogus.

Typically you need to change some CFLAGS or CXXFLAGS. I think you possibly
want -m32. From the gcc man page:
Generate code for a 32-bit or 64-bit environment. The 32-bit
environment sets int, long and pointer to 32 bits and generates code that
runs on any i386 system. The 64-bit environment sets int to 32 bits and long
and pointer to 64 bits and generates code for AMD’s x86-64 architecture.
Alternatively, perhaps you need to set the linker path differently.
In any case, this is actually a bug in the configure script - it should deal

Sorry, don't know MODPOST.
