The latter.

Any time you get a compiler error, that's a problem with your program or
your installation.  Make doesn't have anything to do with that, it just
runs the commands that are listed in the makefile.  If those commands
fail, it's not make's problem.

This looks like maybe you don't have your /usr/include/linux directory
set up correctly.
