Default Trouble building the module in kernel

So when I try to install the driver, it stops with only the message: "Unable to build kernel module" iwthout any explanations. In /var/log/nvidia-install.log the errors starts from here:

What may it means??? I'm using GeForce FX 5600, kernel 2.6.13 and tried the drivers 8178 and 8756 (with same effect).
