[tulip] installing rpm fails

I'm trying to build "netdrivers-3.1-1.src.rpm" in RedHat 7.3 (kernel 
2.4.18-3). I downloaded the OS from RedHat, and I just installed it 
yesterday.  I've made no changes/upgrades to the system--I've been 
struggling with my network card since installing.  So, here's my error:

# rpm -bb netdrivers.spec

<lots of output>

make: *** [pci-skeleton.o] Error 1
  error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.61261 (%build)

RPM build errors:
  error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.61261 (%build)


On a possibly related note, after the install failed I closed my terminal 
and rebooted my machine.  After choosing "reboot" I got another error -- a 
segmentation fault in /usr/bin/python.  Could this be related?

Thanks for any help and/or advice!
