Point me to the patches you want to see integrated and I'll take a look 
next time I go building kernels.

Most likely means you haven't got the openssl-devel package installed 
(that is where all the header files are in redhat... most packages have 
a corresponging package-devel containing headers and such).

Which netwinder disk image are you using?  nw-9 hopefully?  You 
shouldn't have to fiddle with or anything like that.
