Suse Kernel 2.4.18 with NVIDIA confusion

I have upgraded my kernel from 2.4.17 to 2.4.18 with no problem, but now
need to rebuild the NVIDIA_kernel-1.0.2314.src.rpm. When I do the
rpm --rebuild (after rebooting into the new kernel in run level 3) I get 290
lines similar to the following.
/lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/build/include/linux/modversions.h:290:
linux/modules/zorro.ver: No such file or directory.

Being new to Linux, I am not sure what the above line is telling me. (This
rebuild went off without a hitch with 2.4.17 kernel). The modversions.h file
is in the directory shown above, I looked at the modversions.h file and seen
the "#include <linux/modules/zorro.ver>" line along with the other 289
modules. The zorro.h file is in /lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/build/include/linux/
directory along with the other files.

So, I am confused. Should the modversion.h file have the linux/modules/
before the zorro.ver or should these files be in a
/lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/build/include/linux/linux/modules directory. There
is a /lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/build/include/linux/modules directory, but it
is empty.

Could anyone clarify the confusion please?
