[U-Boot-Users] Trouble to build U-Boot under Red Hat 7.3

I don't know if it is your problem, but I had a similar problem the first 
time I tried to make ppcboot in a clean directory.  Try
   touch include/config.h include/config.mk
and then do your
   make <boardconfig>
I think that fixed it for me, but I'm not sure why or maybe it was 
something else that I did...

Just out of curiosity, do a
   which rm
and see what it says.  RedHat likes to create an alias for "rm" to be "rm 
-i".  That is considered to be Really Bad Form in unix circles.  The 
unixlore rule is: never alias a command name because it causes unexpected 
grief when options that you may not have wanted mysteriously are turned on.
