whooaaaaaaa! We have hitler in here! (CherryPopper) J/K

Anyways, you don't have all the development packages installed.

Looks like your using RH8.0

I'm gonna make this easy for me and you, Go into the packages and make sure you have

"Development tools"
"Kernel development"
"X Development"

Life will be easier down the road. Trust me.

Then try rpmbuild --rebuild as root
