The symptoms look familiar. I think we've seen this before and a fix
was to use GNU make instead of the system-supplied one. (The recursive
Makefiles may make it necessary to set $MAKE i.e.

MAKE=gmake gmake

on Bourne shell systems and whatever it takes to get the same effect
in csh). 

My memory feels a little rusty on this, you may want to look back into
the mailing list archives.
