AXP Kernel howto...

Assuming that I know how to compile a kernel etc... How do I get
to 2.0.25 from 2.0.18? Do I need axp-diffs? Where do I get
them if I do? Do I have to use the patches? I rather keep the
2.0.18 kernel source prestine so RPM doesn't freak out.

(I've spent 2 hours looking for this information, but couldn't find it)


PS- I've tried with a brand new 2.0.25 directory with no "axp-diffs"
and I have /usr/src/linux pointing to it, but I get this error
when I make menuconfig:

rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts/lxdialog all
make[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/extra/linux-2.0.25/scripts/lxdialog'
gcc -O2 -Wall -fomit-frame-pointer -DLOCALE -I/usr/include/ncurses -DCURSES_LOC="<ncurses/curses.h>" -c lxdialog.c -o lxdialog.o

/usr/include/timespec.h:1: linux/timespecbits.h: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [lxdialog.o] Error 1

(yes I could try make config, but I figure something is terribly
wrong to make this happen already.)
