This is off-topic in this newsgroup. Wine does not support windows

This may be caused by using the standard compiler for RH instead of
the compiler used for compiling the kernel. That is kgcc, IIRC.
Try "export CC=kgcc" before compiling the drivers.

Further I had to add this line:

#define get_user_ret(x, ptr,  ret) ({ if(get_user(x, ptr)) return ret; })

to au_vortex.h and change INCLUDEDIRS in the Makefile to point to the
kernel headers.
