Some things seem to be there for a reason:

Changeset 24791: "xtables-addons: remove configure fix, its unclear what it is supposed to fix"

It is now clear to me, and the content of the patch quite clearly indicates it :-p ... the removal of 002-configure_fix.patch breaks trunk with newer kernels (I am using ar71xx w/ Kernel

looking at the removed patch again, it seems all kernels with a minor version numbers should fail to configure without it ... as I wrote, I tried it with

I cannot see any issue here. How does it "break trunk" ?

I had the same issue as the above poster. The Makefile is running "make kernelrelease" on the kernel source to get the version which triggers a "make silentoldconfig", which when you actually run it on the kernel source causes a prompt about kernel compression mode to appear, so I assume that's what's breaking the build.

My fix was to place the following patch in trunk/feeds/packages/net/xtables-addons/patches/002-configure.patch

No idea if that's good practice or not. My knowledge of openwrt is somewhat sparse. But it builds and runs fine here.
