    I am compiling linux source code for android emulator. I did all the prerequisites. I extracted the .config file from the android emulator(1.5) with following commands

    $adb pull /proc/config.gz . # get compressed .config file from the emulator.

    $gunzip config.gz # uncompress it.
    $cp config .config # rename it into .config


    And now the config file is in my /android-sdk-linux_x86/tools directory. I have modified it according to my needs. Now when i try to make(for building and cross-compiling the linux source) i get the following error.
