That will probably build a kernel for the Sun SPARC architecture...

That vmlinux file will only be useful for a 64-bit ARM architecture.

What sort of machine are you going to run the newly built kernel on,

(If you're building on the system you'll be booting it on, the distro's gcc and make
commands should be sufficient)
