    Good observation! My make worked fine when I was using a pre libc-5.2.xx
    library. When I updated my libc, I had the exact same problem as mentioned
    above - "No rule to make target" with same binary. I immediately got the
    patch for make-3.74 and compiled it in. And now make is normal. So what did
    I do that broke a working executable? I updated my libc. Ever tried
    removing /lib/* with the hope of installing the new ones? (** Please
    DON'T try it! None of your binaries will work after that unless you reboot
    from different drive and fix the symlinks **) Please don't think in terms of
    DOS .EXEs. Do a man on for further details. The issue is deeper than
    just mere variables.

    So patch your make with dirent bug patch & re-compile. This will make make
    happy :)
