Probably. Almost always when I get that kind of errors, it's because the
.depend-file is old. It holds pointers to files and directories that don't
exist anymore, and there is no way make can recover from that, except by
building from clean. I would suspect that the same is true for your
problems with TOOLDIR pointing at different places at different builds.
