I ran a make clean inside of /usr/src that was completely clean and
received this:
[mail]:[4:17pm]:[/usr/src] > sudo make clean
+for: not found
*** Error code 127

Stop in /usr/src.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src.

The solution was to install the new make from here and that worked:

cd /usr/src/usr.bin/make
make depend
make install

Just a heads up if anyone runs into this.
