Problem compiling gnucash-1-8-branch

I was on IRC a couple days ago with a problem compiling CVS' 1.8 branch, but 
couldn't hang around long enough for warlord to help me. So, I've taken the 
time to start from scratch and try to compile from a clean source tree to see 
if that'll work. Well, it doesn't.
For the record, I'm running Fedora Core 1, as updated from RHL 8.0. I've 
recently updated, compiled and install gnucash's CVS HEAD. The 1.8 branch, 
however is a different story.
This is the error I'm getting:
Making all in core-utils
make[3]: Entering directory `/data/CVS/gnucash/src/core-utils'
rm -f gnucash g-wrapped
ln -sf . gnucash
ln -sf . g-wrapped
for X in gw-core-utils-spec.scm ; do \
  ln -sf /data/CVS/gnucash/src/core-utils/$X . ; \
ln: `/data/CVS/gnucash/src/core-utils/gw-core-utils-spec.scm' and 
`./gw-core-utils-spec.scm' are the same file
make[3]: *** [.scm-links] Error 1

make[2]: Leaving directory `/data/CVS/gnucash/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/data/CVS/gnucash'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I configured with:
./ --prefix=/opt/gnucash-CVS --enable-maintainer-mode --enable-sql

Any ideas? Do you need more info to troubleshoot this?

Fedora Core 1, Kernel 2.4.22-1.2135.nptl,  KDE 3.1.4, Xfree86 4.3.0
 21:40:00  up 24 days,  3:22,  3 users,  load average: 0.17, 0.26, 0.26
It's what you learn after you know it all that counts
