Thanks for the information, it prompted me to look harder.  I am not sure,
but I may have found the problem.  After grepping through the build log
for error messages, I found the following output, which appears to be some
sort of build loop gone wild:

First this
Results of making rescue.cache:
MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/usr/obj/usr/src/rescue/rescue crunchgen -q -m -c rescue.c rescue.conf

Then the following output repeated 363 times

crunchgen: make error: Remaking `crunchgen_objs'

crunchgen: make error: Results of making crunchgen_objs:

crunchgen: make error:

crunchgen: make error: Remaking `loop'

crunchgen: make error: Results of making loop:

crunchgen: make error:

With the following output repeated 2 times within the above output

Run "make -f" to build crunched binary.
*** Error code 1
Results of making
MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/usr/obj/usr/src/rescue/rescue crunchgen -q -m -c rescue.c rescue.conf

I suppose this means that there is a dependency missing for the rescue
crunchgen target?
