[nycbug-talk] Building a Jail on 5.4 - make error

Just got a new install of 5.4 done this morning, and before I start 
loading all kinds of crap on it for testing, I figured the best way to 
do it would be to use jails.  So, I pulled up the manpage for jail, and 
following the instructions, I created a shellscript called 
"make_jail.sh" with the following contents:

kevin at olympus [~]$ cat make_jail.sh
cd /usr/src
mkdir -p $D
make world DESTDIR=$D
cd etc
make distribution DESTDIR=$D
mount_devfs devfs $D/dev
cd $D
ln -sf dev/null kernel

When I ran it, I received this error:

cd: can't cd to /usr/src/tools/regression/usr.bin/make

 >>> Building an up-to-date make(1)
cd: can't cd to /usr/src/usr.bin/make
*** Error code 2

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

Stop in /usr/src.

Any ideas why it's looking for usr.bin instead of usr/bin ?  If I knew 
which file to edit to correct it, I'd do it, but I couldn't find 
anything with usr.bin.

I'm going to see if Ike's jailing presentation is still on the website 
to see if that gives me better joy in the meantime, but I'd still like 
to know what's causing that error if anyone knows.
