	maybe you have an old version of make installed?  
Get the output of these commands:

head -1 /usr/src/etc/Makefile
ls -l `which make`
make -V MAKE_VERSION  # This is actually just the build date
                      # make doesn't have a version.  :(
file `which make`
uname -a
grep __NetBSD_Version__ /usr/src/sys/sys/param.h

and check that these match up with:
	what you think you have installed,
	what you think you have in /usr/src,
	the datetime that you built in /usr/src and
	the datetime that you installed the built files into /
