Hmm, did you do this as a squeaky-clean build? I think I saw something like that on OSX and it disappeared after "make distclean" and reconfiguration.

It's fairly common that a clean build is required after changes to the directory structure or similar changes to the build structure. Every once in a while, it is just not worth the trouble to ensure that you can keep previously built intermediate files.

Also, try not building in the source directory. It's much easier to clean up if build in a separate build directory.
