cp error -- oh the great sanity of *nix tools?!?

Dogma: GNU/*nix programming is *always* so much better than what Redmond
can produce. Yeah, like.
I am running a Makefile installation (`make install') and I keep getting
this error (the package is BerkeleyDB, this is irrelevent):
./db_checkpoint -> /usr/sbin/db_checkpoint
/usr/bin/cp: `./db_checkpoint' and `/usr/sbin/db_checkpoint' are the same
./db_deadlock -> /usr/sbin/db_deadlock
/usr/bin/cp: `./db_deadlock' and `/usr/sbin/db_deadlock' are the same file
./db_dump -> /usr/sbin/db_dump
/usr/bin/cp: `./db_dump' and `/usr/sbin/db_dump' are the same file
./db_load -> /usr/sbin/db_load
/usr/bin/cp: `./db_load' and `/usr/sbin/db_load' are the same file
./db_printlog -> /usr/sbin/db_printlog
/usr/bin/cp: `./db_printlog' and `/usr/sbin/db_printlog' are the same file
./db_recover -> /usr/sbin/db_recover
/usr/bin/cp: `./db_recover' and `/usr/sbin/db_recover' are the same file
./db_stat -> /usr/sbin/db_stat
/usr/bin/cp: `./db_stat' and `/usr/sbin/db_stat' are the same file
make: *** [install] Error 1
You know, the hacker who wrote `cp' to give this error wording needs to be
put up against a wall and *shot*.
What does this mean? I am sure that this is "one of those things" that
everybody but me and two guys in Duluth seem to know.
