	Hey - well, if we can do a build with your 'cp' that works, then we
should tweak the configure check to cope with that. Patches accepted -
and apologies for the regression, some of these things are almost
inevitable sadly.

	I guess you should read Bjoern's commit:

    gnumake3: #i116440# configure should only use a GNU cp from
coreutils with preserve= support and fall back to POSIX cp otherwise

	in bootstrap/ first.
