[linux-dvb] trouble patching, compiling FC3 kernel

What am I doing wrong here?  Building of the kernel dies w/ the 
following message:

$ rpmbuild -bb --target=i686 rpmbuild/SPECS/kernel-2.6.spec
[ output deleted ]
[...]
CONFIG_DVB_DIBUSB
CONFIG_DVB_B2C2_SKYSTAR
make[1]: *** [nonint_oldconfig] Error 2
make: *** [nonint_oldconfig] Error 2
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.22804 (%prep)


RPM build errors:
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.22804 (%prep)

$

I'm building the kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3.src.rpm per
http://crab-lab.zool.ohiou.edu/kevin/kernel-compilation-tutorial-
en/steps.html

After the rpmbuild -bp step, I patch the kernel w/ DVB-2.6.12.patch, 
generating no errors.  I run make menuconfig (only changing my 
processor type to P4, the Broadcom 1310 chipset--for which I'm trying 
to compile in support--is indeed listed in dvb atsc frontends), then 
insert the "# i386" line per
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/2005-May/msg00401.html

Then, I copy the .config and continue on to the rpmbuild -bb per the 
the tutorial above, resulting in the "bad exit" documented above.

Advice?

JB
