I just installed FreeBSD 5.2.1 on a Alpha DS20E server.

The installation was without problems.

The problem comes when I try to compile the kernel.

Following both the "traditional" or the "new" procedure
I always gets the forrlowing error:

----- CUT CUT CUT -------------

awk -f /usr/src/sys/modules/linprocfs/../../conf/kmod_syms.awk 
|  xargs -J% objcopy % linprocfs.kld
ld -Bshareable  -d -warn-common -o linprocfs.ko linprocfs.kld
===> linux
@ -> /usr/src/sys
ln: @/sys: File exists
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/sys/modules/linux.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/sys/modules.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/sys/alpha/compile/SERVER.

----------- END END END -----------

The only reference to this problem I found in the web is an old
mail from  09/30/2001 with the same problem was seen with 
reeBSD 4.4 RELEASE. However no solution was given.

Does anyonwe knows how to solve this problem?

I had no problem in building the kernel from the FreeBSD 5.2.1 release
on a i386 compuer.
