Hi Chris,

the variable TOP in your '/root/lvmstuff/LVM/0.8final/make.tmpl' is set
to '/root/LVM/0.8final', as you could see in following snipped from your
make-errors file:

cc -c -pipe -Wall -O2 -DDEBUG -I/root/LVM/0.8final/tools/lib
l/tools -o basename.o basename.c
cc -c -pipe -Wall -O2 -DDEBUG -I/root/LVM/0.8final/tools/lib
l/tools -o debug.o debug.c
basename.c:34: liblvm.h: No such file or directory

the -I options in the gcc line are expanded from '-I$(TOP)/tools/lib
-I$(TOP)'. You should control your changes in config files at first when
your're searching for errors before you start symlinking around ;-).
