[Buildroot] Is there any chance to compile old buildroot on new distro

Dear buildroot experts,

For about 2 years I work on some commercial project (access control) based
on buildroot-2008.11.

HW details are:
CPU - ARM926EJ-S rev 5 (v5l)
Board - Atmel AT91SAM9260-EK
Former Host - Fedora 9.
Current Host - Fedora 13

After some initial tuning it compiled and produced everything that needed
(all images) excellently, but recently I was silly enough to upgrade my
host's distribution to Fedora 13.
Now I'm in trouble, I can't compile it at all. It fails at the beginning of
the process, I guess the are conflicts between old kernel's headers and new
glibc definitions.
I understand that my buildroot is quite old but unfortunately I have to
continue with it for some time.

Is there any chance to compile it on new distribution?

There are some details of my configuration and new distro tools:
