Sure, when 'make mrproper' fails to remove the directories it thinks are
busy, I just cd into linux/include and rm -rf them manually.

Then, I run make xconfig to build the X-based tool.  Sometimes this fails
with missing files (apparently never copied).  If I move them into place,
it generally proceeds a bit further, but eventually trips over yet another
missing (or corrupted) file.

At this point, I wipe the partition and start over.

As another data point, when copying the source over with 'cp -a linux
/coda/drc/linux', I see a complaint of 'Permission denied' after each
file.  However, I'm unsure what it's complaining about, as the files are
actually (with some spurious exceptions per above) placed on the target.

Sorry I can't help you by digging through the code, but I'm great at
breaking things <g>, so hopefully can be of some help.
