I am new here and have encountered a problem with the Glibc Build while following the book at chapter 5.7.  
Here is a snipped of code from the console.  

make  subdir=iconv -C iconv ..=../ subdir_lib
make[2]: Entering directory `/mnt/lfs/tools/glibc-2.11.1/iconv'
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 /mnt/lfs/tools/glibc-build/../include/linux/limits.h /tools/include/linux/limits.h
/usr/bin/install: `/mnt/lfs/tools/glibc-build/../include/linux/limits.h' and `/tools/include/linux/limits.h' are the same file
make[2]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/tools/glibc-2.11.1/iconv'
make[1]: *** [iconv/subdir_lib] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/tools/glibc-2.11.1'
make: *** [all] Error 2

The host environment is ubuntu 10.04 fully upgraded as of may 18.  

any help would be greatly appreciated.
