Synopsis: The 'INSTALL' for spell "linux" tries to create symlinks with 'ln' on an unsupported filesystem, mounted at /boot.

Any update on this? I am still not able to install the kernel because of this.

I would avoid mounting ESP on /boot.

Recently our chroot installation guide was updated with some notes re:UEFI and disk layout.

tl;dr use /boot for kernels and mount EFI system partition under /boot/efi.
