If you ever encounter those overlapping problems again use some magic and
create a file STATIC in l4/pkg/. The syntax of each line of STATIC is:

<link address> <binary name>

My STATIC file look like this:

0x00200000 names
0x00300000 log

Afterwards do "make relink" in l4/pkg/ and your binaries will be (nomen
est omen) relinked. The big advantage of this approach is, you do not
change any CVS files and won't have to merge.

Hope it helps
