do_install error while running custom bitbake in poky build

I am using latest poky-am335x to build simple helloworld application. With some workaround I can able to compile the application. I am doing lot of trails to install binaries but build is throwing error.

error log :

DEBUG: SITE files ['endian-little', 'bit-32', 'arm-common', 'common-linux', 'common-glibc', 'arm-linux', 'arm-linux-gnueabi', 'common']
DEBUG: Executing shell function do_install

Bitbake file :

do_compile () {
make -C ${WORKDIR}/helloworld all
}


do_install() {

Makefile :

IDIR = ./include
CC = arm-arago-linux-gnueabi-gcc -march=armv7-a -mthumb-interwork -mfloat-abi=softfp -mfpu=neon -mtune=cortex-a8 --sysroot=/home/pis1kor/workspace/poky-am335x/build/tmp/sysroots/am335x-evm
CFLAGS = -I$(IDIR)
LIBS = -lm

FILES = ./src/helloworld.c
OUT_EXE = helloworld

INSTALL = /usr/bin/install -c

INSTALL_DATA = ${INSTALL} -m 644



all: $(FILES)
$(CC) -o $(OUT_EXE) $(FILES) $(CFLAGS) $(LIBS)

install:
$(INSTALL_DATA) -C helloworld ../image
# sudo cp ./helloworld ../image/

clean:
rm -f *.o helloworld


The commented lines are kept like that because just to mansion all the trails I tried with.

Answer

The basic differences are the below.

S = "${WORKDIR}/helloworld/"
EXTRA_OEMAKE = 'all -C ${S}'

"EXTRA_OEMAKE" is the key macro which I didn't used before.

I have changed the bitbake file helloworld.bb file like below.

DESCRIPTION = "Simple helloworld application"
SECTION = "examples"
LICENSE = "MIT"
LIC_FILES_CHKSUM = "file://${COMMON_LICENSE_DIR}/MIT;md5=0835ade698e0bcf8506ecda2f7b4f302"
PR = "r0"

S = "${WORKDIR}/helloworld/"
EXTRA_OEMAKE = 'all -C ${S}'

SRC_URI = "file://helloworld.tar"
