You are quoting a warning. It cannot be the cause of the compile error.

It should be in /usr/src/linux/include/linux/wireless.h if your kernel is patched to support wireless extensions version 14 or above. If WIRELESS_EXT is 13 or less, wireless_send_event() should not be used.

I think it is a problem of your host, because you somehow get WIRELESS_EXT defined to 14 (or maybe even 15), but your kernel is not patched to support it.
