Ok, i got linux-2.1.7.tar.gz, patched it up to 2.1.9 and did a
make xconfig
and this happens:

root@jassi linux]# make xconfig
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-alpha asm)
make -C scripts
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux/scripts'
make -C /usr/src/linux/drivers/sound mkscript
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux/drivers/sound'
Compiling Sound Driver v 3.7-beta6 for Linux
rm -f configure
gcc -o configure configure.c
In file included from /usr/include/time.h:86,
from /usr/include/sys/select.h:32,

from /usr/include/stdlib.h:209,
from configure.c:21:
/usr/include/timespec.h:1: linux/timespecbits..h: No such file or directory

This is the file which was brought by the axp-diffs
