Is there a typo in Chapter 6 when you do the second install of Glibc-2.3.1?

from CVS v. 20021231:

Install Glibc by running the following commands:

mkdir ../glibc-build &&
cd ../glibc-build &&
../glibc-2.3.1/configure --prefix=/usr --disable-profile \
     --enable-add-ons --libexecdir=/usr/bin &&
make &&
make install &&
make -C ../glibc-2.3.1/linuxthreads/man &&
make -C ../glibc-2.3.1/linuxthread/man install &&
exec /bin/bash --login

should the second but last line be:
make -C ../glibc-2.3.1/linuxthreads/man install &&

make -C ../glibc-2.3.1/linuxthread/man install &&


I was (possibly rather foolishly) just copying the install instructions 
into my termial console without really reading them, and just bombs out 

> make: *** ../glibc-2.3.1/linuxthread/man: No such file or directory.  Stop.

Interestingly, the first time I did it, I started getting segmentation 
faults all over the place afterwards, and Im not sure why.... any idea?
