Is Video4Linux the driver I 'm looking for?

V4L (actually, V4L2, as V4L1 is obsolete) is a subsystem that includes drivers for various kinds of video devices. I believe that USB video is now standardized, and so there's really only one driver covering most webcams, the UVC (= USB Video Class) driver.

...in order to build Video4Linux...

It's part of the kernel, although it looks like you should be able to add support by just building the appropriate module(s) -- in any case, building modules requires the source tree your kernel was built from. In the 3.11 source, the USB video driver is in Device Drivers -> Multimedia Support -> Media USB Adapters -> USB Video Class. If you select those, V4L2 is included.

That should at least get the device node to show up.
