That worked perfectly, thank you. One thing I realized after some failed attempts was that DRIVER_TOP_DIR is actually commented out.

Thanks again!

Don't know if you solved this yet, but the problem is the pathing in the
makefile of the drivers.

In the settings.mak file configure DRIVER_TOP_DIR to be the absolute path to
the linuxcan directory.

Then substitute DRIVER_TOP_DIR for PWD for in the Makefile.  This should
allow all the install scripts to build.

There's possibly a better way to do this, but this is what worked for me.
