Look for the 'PPSkit-light-' patches. These can be applied to the matching 
2.6.x kernel source tree to add PPS capability.

In my case I was using a 2.6.16.x kernel & could only find the 
patch, but it only took a few minutes to edit the rejects in by hand.

There are also two include files that need copying - timex.h & timepps.h
Without these NTP will compile but PPS does not work...

Apparently the instructions for this are in the 2.4 PPSKit, but I did'nt see 
them anywhere with the -light patch..

Hope this is of use,
Robert Jenkins.
