Actually this was pretty much the problem - I rearranged my sources
filesystem last week, and BSDSRCDIR wasn't pointing at the source tree any
more - I thought I'd updated it :-( Sorry for the noise.

Eventually I tracked it down by doing a 'nbmake-arm26 -n obj', and then a 'sh
-x' on the shell commands generated.

This does show up a problem though - make obj will fail in BSDSRCDIR/etc if
the obj directory in BSDSRCDIR is a directory, not a link.
