This does not provide much information, You are trying to build world
and kernel for 8.1-STABLE ? or 8.1-RELEASE ?, CURRENT/HEAD ?

Have a log that you can put a link up somewhere so it can be viewed ?

Have you followed UPDATING entries that may be relavent to upgrading to
whatever your building ?

Also have a make.conf and src.conf with entries in it ? if so have you
tried removing those entries ?

Was your obj directory empty before you started your build ? If not,
remove it and start from scratch.

Also defining -DALWAYS_CHECK_MAKE may help in your situation as well but
its really hard to tell from this point.
