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 :)
