Yes, I did, but it doesn't help me.

I checked why make doesn't install new header files.  Then,
finally, I found the reason.  Maybe a stupid reason.  The
reason of problem is like this.

 1. Two src directories were created at /usr/src and
    /emul/aout/usr/src.  Mayby, I executed sup at
    /emul/aout/usr/src while I was moving to ELF system but
    working on an aout format shell.
 2. My /usr/local/bin/cmp (maybe the part of GNU diff) is
    compiled as aout format.
 3. Make doesn't install new header files because it
    executes /usr/local/bin/cmp and the cmp compares old
    header files and /usr/include.

So, I removed all of /emul/aout/usr/src and others.  Then,
I'm doing "make build" now.  It seems to be working well.
Thanks for your help.
