Trying from a fresh checkout:

helmut at xp2400:~$ uname -a
Linux xp2400 2.4.26-1-386 #1 Tue Aug 24 13:31:19 JST 2004 i686 GNU/Linux

helmut at xp2400:~$ svn co http://svn.drbd.org/drbd/tags/drbd-0.7.5
helmut at xp2400:~$ cd drbd-0.7.5
helmut at xp2400:~/drbd-0.7.5$ su
xp2400:/home/helmut/drbd-0.7.5# dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -b
dpkg-buildpackage: source package is drbd
dpkg-buildpackage: source version is 0.7.5-1
cd user && /usr/bin/make
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/helmut/drbd-0.7.5/user'
gcc -c -Wall -I../drbd   -c -o drbdsetup.o drbdsetup.c
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `../drbd/drbd_buildtag.o', needed by 
`drbdsetup'.  Stop.

    make install-tools
as workaround it builds .debs and works the usual debian way.

Next item:
Whatever the reason is, the following is necessary with current packaging

xp2400:/home/helmut# mv /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/block/drbd.o 

to make this

xp2400:/usr/src# update-modules
xp2400:/usr/src# modprobe drbd

working in Sarge.
Now I will try in Sarge + 2.6.8-1, coming soon ...
