The kernel definitely can handle external modules. Most probably the
svgalib configuration process is not finding the kernel sources in the
place they are (for 2.4.x kernels you need to install the matching
kernel-source package, for 2.6.x the required headers are part of the
normal kernel install). Could you send the exact error message? I really
should try to compile all this but at this point I have exactly zero
time free.
