This probably means that you did the build with a 2.0_RC5 kernel running.
After rebooting with the newly compiled 2.0 kernel, the build script will
by default look for tools in a 2.0 directory. So by default you have to
remake new tools for the rest to work correctly.
You can change the default tooldir with the -T option or the TOOLDIR

It's true that it's a little bit confusing in the beginning. I don't know
if this can be improved easily but error messages when tools are not
found are not really clear, sometimes.
