Subject: rtlwifi-new v0.6 and dkms failures


Thanks for your prior assistance with the rtw88 module.  Since manually
compiling and installing works correctly, I have been working to
register the software in dkms, but am running into some difficulties. 
Below are some snippets from a terminal session to illustrate the issue:

udo dkms install rtlwifi-new/0.6

Creating symlink /var/lib/dkms/rtlwifi-new/0.6/source ->

DKMS: add completed.

Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel.  Skipping...

Building module:
cleaning build area....(bad exit status: 2)
make -j12 KERNELRELEASE=5.0.0-11-lowlatency -C
ERROR (dkms apport): binary package for rtlwifi-new: 0.6 not found
Error!  Build of rtl_pci.ko failed for: 5.0.0-11-lowlatency (x86_64)
Consult the make.log in the build directory
/var/lib/dkms/rtlwifi-new/0.6/build/ for more information.

Below is the make.log contents referenced above:

As you can see, the make log does not show any errors, which is baffling
to me.  Any insight you have on resolving this issue would be appreciated.
