Glibc-2.13 install (section 6.9/version 6.8)

Having an issue with the install step of this package.

Seems it doesn't like the symbolic link of

ln -sv /tools/bin/perl /usr/bin

This is as far as I get:

/tools/bin/install -c /sources/glibc-build/iconv/iconvconfig /usr/sbin/iconvconf
mv -f /usr/sbin/ /usr/sbin/iconvconfig
/tools/bin/install -c /sources/glibc-build/iconv/iconv_prog /usr/bin/
/tools/bin/install: accessing `/usr/bin/`: Not a directory
make[2]: *** [/usr/bin/iconv] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory '/sources/glibc-2.13/iconv'
make[1]: *** [iconv/subdir_install] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/sources/glibc-2.13'
make: *** [install] Error 2

This is on a virtual machine running under vmware Virtual Server 2.  I
only got the standard posix/annexc error during the test.  Any ideas
where to start to troubleshoot?
I have been past this point in the past on another machine.  Would it
be bad to remove that symbolic link for this part of the install?
