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.
