make release changes?

My old make release command no longer works for 5.4 and I'm at a loss
to track down the cause or to find a nice solution.
Basically I have one build box which builds all the various releases structure:
With all the relavent files. This used to work fine with the following release line:
make release \
    CHROOTDIR=/usr/local/release-$VERSION \
    CVSROOT=/home/ncvs \
    DOC_LANG=en_US.ISO8859-1 \
    MAKE_ISOS=1 \
    WORLDDIR=/usr/$VERSION/src \


This now produces:
===> lib
===> lib/csu/i386-elf
make: don't know how to make /usr/obj/usr/src/i386/usr/include/stdlib.h. Stop

This is obviously wrong as it should be /usr/5.4/usr/5.4/src/.... so some how
MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX and WORLDDIR are getting lost. Anyone seen this

With some symlinks I can get it to continue but this shouldn't be required and
didn't use to be so I can only assume that something has broken the release
