Hi All,

I'm trying to build klibc against my own kernel source tree. The build
goes fine, the problem is to install it.

As usr/klibc/README asks, I've create a symlink called linux pointing to
my kernel tree:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   25 Jul  2 16:18 linux -> /usr/src/linux-2.6.22-rc6

anderson-herzer:/usr/local/src/klibc-1.5# export LANG=C
anderson-herzer:/usr/local/src/klibc-1.5# make prefix=/usr/local/install
  INSTALL headers + man pages to /usr/local//lib/klibc
cp: cannot copy cyclic symbolic link
make[1]: *** [header] Error 1
make: *** [install] Error 2

anderson-herzer:/usr/local/src/klibc-1.5# uname -a
Linux anderson-herzer 2.6.22-rc6 #4 Mon Jul 2 14:30:42 BRT 2007 x86_64

My distro is Debian unstable amd64.

My processor is (as /proc/cpuinfo)

model name      : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+

If you need more info just tell me.
