yesterday afternoon I cloned the bitkeeper tree,
did a make walnut_config,
make menuconfig
saved the configuration,
did a make dep
and make vmlinux

and get the following redefininition for _machine:

In file included from
                 from printk.c:26:
warning: `_machine' redefined
warning: this is the location of the previous definition

have I missed a step, is this broken or benign?

the rsync tree I pulled earlier doesn't display this behavior ...
