 I think you running 'make check', not the install ?

There was some discussion about this at the end of November on -dev.
I thought the book was being changed at the start of December to run

 sed -i -e 's@/bin/rm@/tools&@ lib/blkid/test_probe.in

in e2fsprogs before configuring it, but I can't see that in the book
and at the moment I can't log on to trac.  The alternative, as in
clfs, is to symlink - this would be less invasive for you because
you wouldn't have to rebuild a fresh e2fsprogs:
 ln -s /tools/bin/rm /bin

Alternatively, if you really are running 'make install', does
'rm -r' work at all ?

das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
