Kernel Make files - a stupid question...

I'm using Bitkeeper to manage a repository for my kernel source code. I'm
using the HardHat version of the kernel 2.4.x.

Since its been put under the bitkeeper manager each directory under the
repository has a directory called SCCS and the top one has a directory called

When I go to build the kernel, the make file walks into the SCCS directories
and tries to build the files there and I get all sorts of errors and warnings.

I had thought that gnu - Make knew about both RCS and SCCS repositories and
unless told otherwise, ignored them?

Does anyone have a solution for this?
