I know part of the problem now - the machine in question has an
install of MontaVista 4.0 cross development tools on it, and it has an
old version of gnu make with the tools that was getting picked up
before the normal make due to path settings.

I updated the path and the compile is running now.  I'm still curious
what about the older make is not grokking in the Makefiles, but my
immediate roadblock is past.

Thanks for looking at this.
