Why would you want to use pcmcia-cs with kernels that support
pcmcia-utils?  pcmcia-cs support remains in Linux 2.6.13 and newer only
for backward compatibility.

... even more so on embedded systems, where you recompile userspace
anyway.  Why would you want extra backward compatibility code in the
kernel and the cardmgr process running all the time?

If you want to see the error, don't use "-j10".  Otherwise, the output
from up to 10 compilers is mixed together.  All I see is warnings.

I could compile pcmcia-cs 3.2.8 against Linux 2.6.17.  I did get the
warnings you are reporting, but no fatal errors.

It would be better if you used POSIX locale when you are going to report
the messages.  Not that I cannot understand "Interruption" at all, but I
may be missing some nuances.  Can it be that the build was interrupted,
e.g. by Ctrl-C?

Can it be that you didn't enable PCMCIA backward compatibility in the
