Uhm, never do this. Especially if you're tracking current. Yes, you can,
but it's a very bad idea. You actually can cause problems that way. It
doesn't look like it's causing your problem here, but it's not good.

A better thing to do is build into a destdir, then build a release. You'll
get tarballs (.tgz sets), which you can then install in single-user mode.
You can do the build via:

cd /usr/src;
./ -D /your/DESTDIR -R /your/RELEASEDIR -U -T /your/TOOLDIR

Take care,
