Compile new modules

I have an old OS/2 hard drive (hpfs filesystems) I want to access, so I 
went to build the hpfs kernel module. Ran "make menuconfig" selected the 
module, saved the new .config, and tried to "make modules:"

[root at lancre]# make modules
  CHK     include/linux/version.h
  CHK     include/linux/utsrelease.h
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `missing-syscalls'.  Stop.
make: *** [prepare0] Error 2

I have the kernel-devel and kernel-headers rpms installed:

[root at lancre]# rpm -qa|grep kernel

What else do I need? 

Do I need to start from a clean kernel source tree and build the modules 
from there?
