This is the first time I've seen that error. I have no idea how to fix
this. Perhaps you better reinstall your development packages on Caldera
and see if it makes a difference (like glibc-dev, kernel-dev and
others). Also, use a non-pre kernel (like 2.2.16) so you're sure it
can't be some kernel glitch.
