So you are including a kernel header in your program.

And report this in a mailing list used to report bugs
in the make program.
This list is not for random build failures.

So a few points to consider:
1) This is not related to problems with make.
2) You have a missing dependency - ext_fs.h needs one
   or a few .h files included to compile.
   grep is your friend here - or look at other
   progrmas that uses ext2_fs.h.
3) Reporting this type of basic
   problem I have the impression you try
   to do something where you do not need
   to deal with the internals of etx2.
   For basic file operations use the glibc
   provided header files.
