environment: AMD duron processor 1.2 ghz processor; 600+m of ram.  Suse 10.2 linux

Start lirc setup:
     gary at suselinux:~/lirc-0.8.0> ./setup.sh  

This starts a dialog that produces the configure script and then runs it.
The script closes with this:
     You will have to use the lirc_serial kernel module.
     Now enter 'make' and 'make install' to compile and install the package.
     gary at suselinux:~/lirc-0.8.0>

When I rum "make" a lot of errors occur; excerpt from console log:
make[4]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-'
make -C ../../../linux- O=../linux- modules
make -C /usr/src/linux- \
        KBUILD_SRC=/usr/src/linux- \
        KBUILD_EXTMOD="/home/gary/lirc-0.8.0/drivers/lirc_dev" -f /usr/src/linux- modules
test -e include/linux/autoconf.h -a -e include/config/auto.conf || (           \
        echo;                                                           \
        echo "  ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid.";               \
        echo "         include/linux/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are missing.";      \
        echo "         Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it.";  \
        echo;                                                           \

----------> running the "make oldconfig && make prepare" did not fix the problem <----------------
