Mysterious missing makefiles

To install my ZIP disk I need to recompile my Kernal but the makefile(s) that contain the targets xconfig, menuconfig, etc.  are not on my hard disk! :( I'm using Mandrake, what package(s) should I (re)install to get the makefile(s) that contain these targets?

You probably haven't installed the kernel source if you can't compile it. Make sure you have installed kernel-source -package and that you are in the /usr/src/linux directory when you issue the make command.

Ok I just did that. Here's the result:
cc1: invalid option 'preferred-stack-boundary=2'
make[1]: *** [tkparse.o] Error 1

Looks like the compiler doesn't like the -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 option but when I check GNU's manual it say that the option is ok.

What's the problem?
