you might wanna check that the path to obj stuff is the same for the "build 
and the "build install". if you run these on different OS versions (for example
on a 1.6 and 1.6T), then the "build install" will look in a different directory
than that used to put objects/bins by "build dist". [I am assuming you're

check /usr/src/tools/obj.$machine/tools.NetBSD-$version-$machine/ directories
and check the error message to see whether it is looking for nbpax in the one
you actually have.
