Along with several other packages, genkernel depends on the /usr/src/linux symlink to locate the kernel source. You need to set that to your zen-sources directory, like so:
Code:
cd /usr/src
rm linux
ln -s <zen-sources-directory> linux
genkernel all
If you've already got a .config file in there, then genkernel will erase it and use one of its own by default. You can prevent that by including the --oldconfig command line option.
