I could reproduce your problem by undefining CONFIG_NET_WIRELESS.  You
should define CONFIG_NET_RADIO (Wireless LAN) in the kernel's .config -
that would enable CONFIG_NET_WIRELESS.

Better protection against this case should be implemented.  For example,
by this patch:

=====================================
--- Makefile
+++ Makefile
@@ -39,6 +39,10 @@
 endif
 endif

+ifndef CONFIG_NET_WIRELESS
+$(error Wireless LAN is not enabled in the kernel)
+endif
+
 VERFILE := $(KERNEL_PATH)/include/linux/version.h
 KERNELRELEASE := $(shell if [ -r $(VERFILE) ]; \
 	then (cat $(VERFILE); echo UTS_RELEASE) | $(CC) $(INCLUDES) $(CFLAGS) -E - | tail -1 | xargs echo; \
=====================================
