Kernel compile problems

I'm trying to compile the 2.4.21 kernel on RedHat 7.3.  When I get to the
part of make modules_install (or make install for that matter), it craps
out in the end when it executes the depmod.

Every module that I have selected in the config reports unresolved
symbols.  I even tried previous configs that compiled successfully in the
past, but the same problem exists.

Any suggestions??

# make modules_install
if [ -r ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F  2.4.21; fi
