Glibc installation in target machine fails

I successfully chrooted my target machine and I passed all the way upto man-page installation, and I stepped into glibc(chapter 6.9). I performed all the steps till "make" without any error after entering the make check command Its giving me an error.


make -k check 2>&1 | tee glibc-check-log
grep Error glibc-check-log

Since its a check, I ignored it and I performed with the next step that's "make install" even this fails and throw me an error as


make[2]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/--disable-profile--enable-add-ons--enable-kernel=2.6.25/lib/', needed by `install-lib-nosubdir'. Stop.

could someone assist me resolve this.
