Warnings aren't fatal unless you ask them to be (with -Werror). If you're seeing compiler *errors*, it's usually because you have an incomplete kernel config file. Compare it to the sample config files (pay careful attention to the comments that tell you what options are required by the drivers and systems you add or remove), and post it here together with the errors you receive from the build, if you require further help.
