The error messages look like you've been attempting to compile a vanilla
kernel from ftp.kernel.org.  Won't work, get a tree from ftp.linux.sgi.com.
You're also passing variables to make which normally isn't necessary.  Did
you've select CONFIG_CROSSCOMPILE when configuring the kernel?  The sources
will then automatically select the right compiler.
