After getting this working, it's building them correctly; but it still
can't load them. 

After some sh -x backtracing, the problem turned out to be in the esm.o
module, to wit:

modprobe: Can't locate module /lib/modules/2.4.21-ac4/misc/esm.o
shadur at magi:/usr/src$ sudo depmod -a
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.21-ac4/misc/esm.o
shadur at magi:/usr/src$ sudo modprobe  esm
/lib/modules/2.4.21-ac4/misc/esm.o: unresolved symbol local_bh_enable
/lib/modules/2.4.21-ac4/misc/esm.o: unresolved symbol local_bh_disable
Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
	and it has unresolved symbols.  Contact the module supplier for
	assistance, only they can help you.
/lib/modules/2.4.21-ac4/misc/esm.o: insmod failed
/lib/modules/2.4.21-ac4/misc/esm.o: insmod esm failed

Is there an option I might have forgotten to compile into the kernel?
