Strange make buildworld behaviour with 5.4-RELEASE ( amd64 )

Doing a make buildworld from a directory other than /usr/src
results in the following:
/usr/obj/.usr/amd64/src/lib32/usr/lib32/libl.a -> /usr/obj/.usr/amd64/src/lib32/usr/lib32/libln.a
/usr/obj/.usr/amd64/src/lib32/usr/lib32/libfl.a -> /usr/obj/.usr/amd64/src/lib32/usr/lib32/libln.a
/usr/obj/.usr/amd64/src/lib32/usr/lib32/libl_p.a -> /usr/obj/.usr/amd64/src/lib32/usr/lib32/libln_p.a
/usr/obj/.usr/amd64/src/lib32/usr/lib32/libfl_p.a -> /usr/obj/.usr/amd64/src/lib32/usr/lib32/libln_p.a
===> usr.sbin/pcvt/keycap
Warning: Object directory not changed from original /.usr/amd64/src/usr.sbin/pcvt/keycap

My /usr is a symlink to /.usr/amd64/ which shouldnt cause any
issues but buildworld get most upset. I first thought it was bad
source set but booting to single user and moving things around
so /usr is a real dir with the contents of /.usr/amd64 in works
just fine. Anyone got any ideas why and how to fix?
