SubjectRe: configuring from kernel source directory
> and then I made the soft link to point to the new directory.

If you are talking about a soft link named "linux", just completely
delete it and reset it to the value that it had when you installed
your distribution and then never touch it again.

> rm: include/asm: is a directory

Instead of "cp -Rr" to copy the directory, use "cp -a". There is
a symlink in your source directory and "cp -Rr" is de-referencing it,
whereas "cp -a" properly preserves it.

Hope this helps,
