Yikes, Thanks for pointing out my omission in that suggestion (I typically remove the .config deletion from the makefile). If you do actually keep a copy of the config, and replace it in the source tree after cleaning it.. this problem should disappear.

# cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.3-15mdk
# cp .config /tmp/.config
# make mrproper
# cp /tmp/.config .
# make prepare

And all should be well.
