Make menuconfig errors with new kernel

I was running kernel 3.10.7-r1 and im trying to update to 3.11.5. What ive done is taken the 3.11.5 kernel directory and moved it into /usr/src, I linked /usr/src/linux to the 3.11.5. I added symlink to my use flag in /etc/portage/make.conf. I try running make menuconfig in /usr/src/linux and this is what i get:

/bin/sh: /usr/src/linux-3.11.5/scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/ No such file or directory
/bin/sh: /usr/src/linx-3.11.5/scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/ No such file or directory
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/checklist.c', needed by 'scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/checklist.o'. Stop. Make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2
