Yep, he's complaining about real obj directories, not symlinks.

Is your crypto-intl tree a real subdirectory of BSDSRCDIR ? Symlinks
aren't ok. Part of what the obj code does is pwd the source code
directory, and make sure they agree to the length of BSDSRCDIR. If
crypto-intl is a symlink somewhere else, you'll not have the overlap, so
you get real obj directories.

Take care,
