This kind of error is usually generated when an old version
of gmake is in the path. Older versions of gmake don't understand
$(abspath ...) and always return the empty string. As the
result is used as a path that one is missing. On build10s
was SUNWgmake installed which I deinstalled now.

It may be a good idea to write some kind of test case
which bails out if an unsuitable version of gmake is found.

Please see if this really solved your problem.

Best regards
