229 Sometimes issues on the host development system can cause your
230 build to fail.
231 Following are known, host-specific problems.
232 Be sure to always consult the
233 <ulink url='&YOCTO_HOME_URL;/download/yocto/yocto-project-&DISTRO;-release-notes-poky-&POKYVERSION;'>Release Notes</ulink>
234 for a look at all release-related issues.

237 If your development host system has the unpatched
238 <filename>GNU Make 3.82</filename>,
239 the <filename>do_install</filename> task
240 fails for <filename>eglibc-initial</filename> during the
241 build.</para>
242 <para>Typically, every distrobution that ships
243 <filename>GNU Make 3.82</filename> as
244 the default already has the patched version.
245 However, some distributions, such as Debian, have
246 <filename>GNU Make 3.82</filename> as an option, which
247 is unpatched.
248 You will see this error on these types of distributions.
249 Switch to <filename>GNU Make 3.81</filename> or patch
250 your <filename>make</filename> to solve the problem.
