Strange. When I try it, it's just "> tmac.doc-common", with or without
an obj directory; no fullpath on the target.

I've built current with a read-only src directory a few times, the
latest not less than a couple of weeks ago. You might try "make
install" in /usr/src/share/mk before doing "make obj" and "make build"
again from the top.
