i'm following the following tutorial to create bind9 under a jail:

in doing so, i'm getting the following error:

# make world DESTDIR=/usr/jail/bind9

>>> Building an up-to-date make(1)
make: don't know how to make /usr/jail/bind9/usr/lib/libc.a. Stop
*** Error code 2

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

Stop in /usr/src.

i've tried googling this, and i haven't come up with any workable
solutions.  i've cvsup'd the latest stable sources, and i've retried after
doing a "make clean DESTDIR=..." (i don't know if this does anything to
help), but i run into the same issue.

i'm using 6.1 on a Sparc64 machine (an ultra5) that was booted from a
CD, but pulled files from an FTP server.

any help will be greatly appreciated
