Those were the instructions that I'd followed previously. It fails the same 
way using either the 116 or the 117.

There is probably a slight difference in the kernel configuration between the
set of C header files you specified and your running kernel.  You may want to
rebuild a kernel based on that directory, or specify another directory.
