Comes from not installing devel files during installation. An old
problem with you Yash. ;) 

gcc searches for linux/limit.h in /usr/src/linux/include/linux first
and then in /usr/include/linux. So you have not installed
kernel-headers RPM or you are compiling the kernel from a location
other than /usr/src/linux

-lm stands for the libm.a math library. Strangely, it is a standard
 glibc library. see if it's there in /usr/lib. If it's any where else,
 copy it to /usr/lib and recompile

P.S. What's hamradio doing in your kernel? That's where the ld problem
is coming. Or did you really mean to compile the ham radio modules in?????
