Can't rebuild drivers, get errors during compile

I upgraded to Core 2, but this has caused an issue with rebuilding
drivers. At first it complained that there were no header files. It told
me that I had to run make on the kernel. This of course, created the
version.h file with "custom". I cleared that and now I get the following

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

Argument "gcc (GCC) 3" isn't numeric in numeric ge (>=) at
/usr/bin/ line 1493, <STDIN> line 1.
What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your
kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]

The kernel defined by this directory of header files does not have the
address space size as your running kernel.

In the past with all version going back to RH7.3, I have only had to
install the kernel source to build drivers. This is the first time that
I have had to do anything with them.
