I'm running a virtual machine, using VMWare Player, running Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation 6.4 x86_64 and I'm trying to install Qt 4.7.0 from the qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.0.tar.gz file on Qt's download site. Running the ./configure command works normally, but when running gmake, I encounter the following errors:

ln: creating symbolic link `libQtCore.so': Operation not supported
gmake[1]: [../../lib/libQtCore.so.4.7.0] Error 1 (ignored)
ln -s libQtCore.so.4.7.0 libQtCore.so.4
ln: creating symbolic link `libQtCore.so.4': Operation not supported
gmake[1]: [../../lib/libQtCore.so.4.7.0] Error 1 (ignored)
ln -s libQtCore.so.4.7.0 libQtCore.so.4.7
ln: creating symbolic link `libQtCore.so.4.7': Operation not supported
gmake[1]: [../../lib/libQtCore.so.4.7.0] Error 1 (ignored)

gmake works normally for a while

what user are you doing this as, what are the mount options on /mnt/user/CBrown, and what's the underlying file-system? –  tink Jun 6 '13 at 22:27
    
We're running this as root. The underlying file system is Common Internet File System (cifs). The mount options are rw, relatim. –  Sean Lyons Jun 7 '13 at 15:35
    
There's your problem. Copy the source locally, or to a file-system that understands symlinks. –  tink Jun 7 '13 at 20:23
