this way) I would conclude that you're running into a problem with
make's -C parameter and the ~ interpretation because the path names
look mangled:

mkdir /home/mage/soekris10dst//usr/home/mage/soekris10obj/usr/home/mage/soekris10/release/dist/doc

Also an earlier command executed by make looks wrong:

cd /usr/home/mage/soekris10/release/.. && make TARGET_ARCH=amd64 TARGET=amd64 distributeworld DISTDIR=/usr/home/mage/soekris10obj/usr/home/mage/soekris10/release/dist

The path is "doubled" here, whereas the the upper example shows a
"concatenation" (notice the "//").

Maybe sudo is also involved here, because "make -j 3 -C ~/soekris10
buildworld buildkernel" didn't seem to get any problems. How about
trying su instead of sudo? I cannot explain this entirely, but I
assume this is the result of too many variable resolutions (the
environmental settings, the command line parameters) and probably
a strange kind of precedence...
