I suspected that my omission (unintentional) of details will confuse
someone. Namely, I didn't mention that by "leftover from previous build" I
meant that there was something in your tree (not my local tree!) which
caused the build to fail unless one executes "make clean" for real and to
do that one needs a Makefile, so I used Makefile.in as Makefile and it did
So, I repeat, I did "p4 sync" on a clean tree (no previous builds) then
copied that tree somewhere and did a Build on it, which failed.
