Does that happen with every make command? Have you tried different Makefiles
to see whether the problem was with `make' itself?
In any event, here's how to get some sense out of that error.
First, make a debugging version of the `make' executable:
# gcc -g -o /usr/bin/make_g /usr/src/usr.bin/make/*.c \
> /usr/src/usr.bin/make/lst.lib/*.c -I/usr/src/usr.bin/make \
Then try and reproduce the error with `make_g' instead of `make'.
If it does the same thing, do this:
$ gdb /usr/bin/make_g make_g.core
