yup, an empty defkeymap.c would cause this same problem I think.
you'll need the console-tools package installed which contains
loadkeys and /bin will probably need to be in your $PATH.
The empty file is probably created by the shell redirect in..
[drivers/char/Makefile, line 202]
loadkeys --mktable defkeymap.map | sed -e 's/^static *//' > defkeymap.c
(thats broken - the exit status is that of the last command
in the pipeline (sed) which succeeds, so make will charge
right on not noticing the error - right Keith?)
