I don't think you are using the GNU make....I had the same problem on
BSDI, at work, until I started using GNU make.

If you run the make commands manually you will see that the non-GNU make
doesn't like the -C switch.  Check out your Makefile.

Having said all that, it's kind of moot now as Bradley has released
0.40.11 and it uses configure etc. instead.   >;)
