I'm a bit confused by your subject line.  "make dep" shouldn't be doing
any linking!  Assuming the subject is wrong...

What does "ls -l drivers/scsi/scsi.a" tell you?  Is it a zero length file
by any chance?  "hppa1.1-linux-objdump --headers drivers/scsi/scsi.a"
might show something useful too.

Also, try a "make distclean", then re-make if you haven't already tried
