Unhappy BUG with Atlhon 3800+ and 6600 gt - Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module


I have installed my own kernel with kpkg. Then I have installed the packages with dpkg.

#dpkg -i linux-headers-2.6.23_2.6.23-10.00.Custom_amd64.deb
#dpkg -i linux-image-2.6.23_2.6.23-10.00.Custom_amd64.deb
#dpkg -i linux-source-2.6.23_2.6.23-10.00.Custom_all.deb

Now , # uname -a
Linux tux 2.6.23 #2 SMP Wed Nov 7 20:03:34 CET 2007 x86_64 GNU/Li

Then I have executed the script on the web site for my geforce 6600 GT.
# sh
And i have this error : "Unable to build the nvidia kernel modules " ?
Can you help me ?

my log :
