Works fine here against an empty object tree:

Are you building into an already-built object tree or rebuilding an
already built tree?

This is likely caused by make getting confused over the dependencies.
I suggest making clean to recover from this error.

FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line: now at 9.7Mbps down 460kbps up... slowly
improving, and getting towards what was expected from it.
