Hey Folks -

I'm new to the list so apologies if I break protocol. I believe our 
system-source-fetching tool is pulling in a /usr/src revision that still 
has a broken "make distribution". Please reference the following PR for 


Note that the patch on that page simply does a revert on the commit 
that switched the "ln" commands to "install" commands in the Makefile's, 
as well as a couple more things that don't appear to be necessary. That 
reverse patch cannot be directly applied to our version of the source. 
Hacker that I am, I simply did the quick fix given below.
