           Summary: /usr/src/linux causes build problems
           Product: Beyond LinuxFromScratch
           Version: SVN
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: BOOK
        AssignedTo: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: randy at linuxfromscratch.org
         QAContact: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org

If the kernel sources are installed in /usr/src/linux, or
if a symlink exists from /usr/src/linux to the kernel sources,
some packages fail to build.

cdrtools and iptables fail for sure. These two packages and any
others which fail to build if /usr/src/linux exist should have 
a blurb mentioning the problem.

(of course, this is dependant upon the kernel sources being in
/usr/src/linux. If for whatever reason someone symlinked the
sanitized headers to /usr/src/linux, there may not be issues, so
the wording needs to ensure we're talking about raw kernel sources)
