Problem in Compiling Kernel Module for Openmoko

Dear Sir,

I am trying to compile a kernel module to run on openmoko, and in this regard I downloaded the provided toolchain and the kernel from;a=summary

The problem is that the downloaded kernel from;a=summary does not has the file gta02_defconfig where as this instruction is given on the site:
"You also need to cp ./arch/arm/configs/gta02_defconfig .config before building"

However I used another file in the same directory i.e. ./arch/arm/configs/gta02_micro_defconfig however when I say ./build . then this output appears:

scripts/kconfig/conf -s arch/arm/Kconfig

scripts/kconfig/conf -s arch/arm/Kconfig
  CHK     include/linux/version.h
/bin/sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `('
/bin/sh: -c: line 0: `echo 2.6.29-GTA02_(no-mokodev > include/config/kernel.release'
make[1]: *** [include/config/kernel.release] Error 2
make: *** [sub-make] Error 2
make: INTERNAL: Exiting with 17 jobserver tokens available; should be 16!

Please help me I am stuck in this problem for 2 days, and I am getting desperate. I would be really grateful.
