I believe you will see this error if you do not set "linux 
/usr/src/linux" or where ever your linux kernel source tree is.  Put 
this in, and I think this error will go away.

But I should mention that I have never gotten this to boot with 
USE_ELF_BOOT=1, though I am told it should.  It has only worked for me 
using vmlinux.gin.gz, ie, direct loading a non-elf image.
