The problem here is that the wrong uname is begin run... I've been meaning to 
update suse_base to pull in the right rpm so that uname is installed. IIRC 
its will also pull in test

I have a Makefile that gets to the point that it is "registering the install" 
and it cores. A 1.5 kernel fails more spectacularly than a -current kernel, 
but they both fail. I gave up at this point as something needs fixing in the 
linux emulation code...
