Ok this also fails in the same way
/usr/obj/usr/src_amd64/lib32/usr/lib32/libl_p.a -> /usr/obj/usr/src_amd64/lib32/usr/lib32/libln_p.a
/usr/obj/usr/src_amd64/lib32/usr/lib32/libfl_p.a -> /usr/obj/usr/src_amd64/lib32/usr/lib32/libln_p.a
===> usr.sbin/pcvt/keycap
Warning: Object directory not changed from original /usr/src_amd64/usr.sbin/pcvt/keycap
make: don't know how to make /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/stdio.h. Stop
*** Error code 2

Clearly /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/stdio.h doesn't exist it I would have thought
this should be:

I think I found the problem though in usr.sbin/pcvt/keycap there is a file .depend
ls -l ./usr.sbin/pcvt/keycap/.depend
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  921 May  8 06:46 ./usr.sbin/pcvt/keycap/.depend
which has:
# -DKEYCAP_PATH="/usr/share/misc/keycap.pcvt" keycap.c
keycap.o keycap.po keycap.So: keycap.c /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/stdio.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/sys/cdefs.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/sys/_null.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/sys/_types.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/machine/_types.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/ctype.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/_ctype.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/runetype.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/unistd.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/sys/types.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/machine/endian.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/sys/select.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/sys/_sigset.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/sys/_timeval.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/sys/timespec.h \
  /usr/obj/usr/src/lib32/usr/include/sys/unistd.h keycap.h
I'd be willing to take a guess that this is whats breaking things but dont
know how to best go about fixing it. Just delete it would be my guess
but why is it there? Shouldn't it have been deleted by make cleandir or
make cleanworld?

Im running another buildworld to test with the file deleted.
