Thanks for the speedy reply, Mike.

ergh - VIDEO_CX23885 seems to be selected for build:

# grep 23885 v4l/.*config
v4l/.myconfig:CONFIG_VIDEO_CX23885                         := m

I'm building from the public cvs that I pulled last night (and check  
for an update today). I had the same problem with a tarball I also  

So how do I determine what dependancy is killing me? This is a pretty  
new build (just installed on Fedora 8 on Saturday) so there isn't too  
much creft.

Thanks again.
