Are the *-latest sources available, or did you mean you changed it

Of course I can specify the target. But I don't get why
'make initrd.img-2.6.24-1-pve'
fails exactly at the posted kvm-75 error-message. I don't see any point 
in building kvm-75 if the target is the initrd... That I meant with 
A side note: IMO there should be stable make-targets without

I suspect we don't talk aboout the same source-package/Makefile
# md5sum pve-kernel-2.6.24_2008-10-29/Makefile 
9c4cfe085ebecd58945a8d96e4c9faea  pve-kernel-2.6.24_2008-10-29/Makefile
3208908b71c0715c718e37e3ba4a9214  pve-kernel-2.6.24_2008-10-29.tar.gz

The second option is that the environment is not complete. See below.

I suspect you build on Debian:
uname -a
dpkg -l
cat /etc/cpuinfo

If not, please post an aequivalent of dpkg -l for $distribution you are 

IMO it would be target-aimed if you would support building on the 
stable-release with the latest published source-package.
