I was hoping to get my webcam working with the latest v4l-dvb sources.
 After reading about on this list and elsewhere, I ran:

# make kernel-links

from my v4l-dvb directory in order to modify my current linux sources
to use the v4l-dvb drivers.  Then I went to my gspca directory and ran
the "gspca_build" script:

./gspca_build

 REMOVE the old module if present
ERROR: Module gspca does not exist in /proc/modules

 CLEAN gspca source tree
rm -r -f *.o decoder/.gspcadecoder.o.cmd decoder/*.o \
        .gspca.o.cmd  *.o *.ko *.mod.* .[a-z]* core *.i \
        *.symvers *.err

Is this fixable?
