Levels of sym links

Hi. While compiling several packages in the chrooted environment i got
complais and errors runing make install about a missing
ginstall("/usr/bin/ginstall file not found"), as fileutils was just
recently  re-conpiled with dinamic libraries and moved all the binaries
including "install" to /bin i just ran the command "ln -s /bin/install
/usr/bin/ginstall".
Now, while compiling make and modutils in 2 different chrooted consoles I
get this messages:

/bin/sh: /usr/bin/ginstall: Too many levels of symbolic links
 /usr/bin/ginstall -c -m 644 ./pt_BR.mo
/usr/share/locale/pt_BR/LC_MESSAGES/make.mo
/bin/sh: /usr/bin/ginstall: Too many levels of symbolic links
 /usr/bin/ginstall -c -m 644 ./ru.mo
/usr/share/locale/ru/LC_MESSAGES/make.mo
/bin/sh: /usr/bin/ginstall: Too many levels of symbolic links
make[2]: *** [install-data-local] Error 126
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/make-3.79.1/i18n'
make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/make-3.79.1/i18n'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

and this one:


/bin/sh: install: command not found
+ install -s modinfo /sbin
/bin/sh: install: command not found
make[1]: *** [install-bin] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modutils-2.3.13/insmod'
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/modutils-2.3.13/genksyms'
install -s genksyms /sbin
make[1]: execvp: install: Too many levels of symbolic links
make[1]: *** [install-bin] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modutils-2.3.13/genksyms'
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/modutils-2.3.13/depmod'
install -s depmod /sbin
make[1]: execvp: install: Too many levels of symbolic links
make[1]: *** [install-bin] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modutils-2.3.13/depmod'
make: *** [install-bin] Error 2

Whats wrong? Everything was going so smoothly. How can i fix this? Is that
thing with the ginstall normal? Sometimes i jsut edited the makefile and
changed ginstall  for install and it worked, but don't know what's wrong
now.
Ideas, please?
