You will have to install the linux-headers package ... I'm not 
completely sure what fedora calls it.  some distros call it, 
"kernel-headers" others call it "linux-headers" ...

Also, since you will be using both the ivtv driver in addition to the 
v4l-dvb drivers, you might also want to build the ivtv drivers along 
with the rest of v4l-dvb.  (otherwise you run the risk of module 
versioning conflicts) ...

To do this, run "make ivtv" before actually running, "make" ...  (This 
step requires subversion)

HTH,
