Unhappy The damn buildmeister error

I apologive for the length of my post but I have read through this entire forum and cant find anything that might solve my problem:

I am one of the many people getting the buildmeister error when trying to build the NVidia kernel source:

It starts with:
-------------------------------------
[root@res00488 Downloads]# rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.src.rpm
Installing NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.src.rpm
warning: user buildmeister does not exist - using root
warning: group buildmeister does not exist - using root
warning: user buildmeister does not exist - using root
warning: group buildmeister does not exist - using root
-------------------------------------
then comes some weird symbols and stuff followed by about a hundred lines of these errors:
-------------------------------------
/lib/modules/2.4.18-17.8.0/build/include/linux/kernel.h:60: parse error before numeric constant
/lib/modules/2.4.18-17.8.0/build/include/linux/kernel.h:61: `panic_R_ver_str' declared as function returning a function
-------------------------------------
and ends pleasantly with:
-------------------------------------
nv.c:2831: warning: implicit declaration of function `inter_module_get_Rf6a0ce24'
nv.c:2832: warning: implicit declaration of function `inter_module_put_R6b99f7d8'
make: *** [nv.o] Error 1
-------------------------------------
then some more symbols and
-------------------------------------
+ install -m 0444 NVdriver /var/tmp/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0//lib/modules/2.4.18-17.8.0/kernel/drivers/video
install: cannot stat `NVdriver': No such file or directory
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.78301 (%install)


RPM build errors:
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
group buildmeister does not exist - using root
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
group buildmeister does not exist - using root
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.78301 (%install)
-------------------------------------
After reading some posts here I tried a few things, including seeing if I had the right packages installed...even though I did the full 4 gig install of all packages for the workstation environment:
-------------------------------------
[root@res00488 Downloads]# rpm -qa | grep rpm-build
rpm-build-4.1-1.06
[root@res00488 Downloads]# rpm -qa | grep gcc
compat-gcc-c++-7.3-2.96.110
libgcc-3.2-7
gcc-g77-3.2-7
gcc-java-3.2-7

[root@res00488 Downloads]# rpm -qa | grep binutils
binutils-2.13.90.0.2-2
[root@res00488 Downloads]# rpm -qa | grep glibc-devel
glibc-devel-2.2.93-5
[root@res00488 Downloads]# rpm -qa | grep glibc-kernheaders
glibc-kernheaders-2.4-7.20
[root@res00488 Downloads]# rpm -qa | grep kernel-source
kernel-source-2.4.18-17.8.0
-------------------------------------
In case you couldnt tell I am running kernel version 18-17.8.0 instead of the older 18-14. I tried grep kernel and came up with:
-------------------------------------
[root@res00488 Downloads]# rpm -qa | grep kernel
kernel-2.4.18-14
kernel-doc-2.4.18-17.8.0
kernel-utils-2.4-8.13
kernel-pcmcia-cs-3.1.31-9
kernel-source-2.4.18-17.8.0
kernel-debug-2.4.18-14
kernel-2.4.18-17.8.0
kernel-debug-2.4.18-17.8.0
kernel-uml-2.4.18-14
-------------------------------------
Dont know if the fact that 18-4 is listed before my running kernel, but I am almost sure i am running 18-17 since my login says 18-17. Also, even thought I didnt get that GCC mismatch error I did this anyway:
-------------------------------------
[root@res00488 Downloads]# cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.4.18-17.8.0 (bhcompile@porky.devel.redhat.com) (gcc version 3.2
20020903 (Red Hat Linux 8.0 3.2-7)) #1 Tue Oct 8 11:48:09 EDT 2002
[root@res00488 Downloads]# cc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.2/specs

Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.2 20020903 (Red Hat Linux 8.0 3.2-7)
-------------------------------------
So it seems my versions are correct.

This is a fresh full install off the 8.0 cds, not an upgrade. It's a fresh install of the drivers as well.

I am clueless ...can anyone help??

THANKS!!!
