Humm...those symbols are in the netfilter.h include...they should be
there. Some things to try:

- are you SURE you are running the 2.4.1 kernel you just built? 

- Might try copying off your .config and then doing a 'make mrproper'
and moving the .config back and re-building the kernel and modules.
