2.4.18-3, I believe, out-of-the-box as it came with RedHat 7.3. It

Hmm. I believe I did install that package. (IIRC, it's turned into
gcc_headers or something like it, replacing kernel_headers.) But since
the install failed toward the end (I had already put the 3rd of the 3

Hmmm... not sure what installing "from scratch" would involve. Just going
through "make xconfig" and the rest of that dance had a whole lot of
puzzling aspects as it was.
