do you have a bfd.h lying around somewhere it shouldn't?  check
your source tree for extra files?  eg 'cvs up -dPA -I\! -ICVS'.
sometimes make can find something gcc won't, and this happens.

Hmmm.  "Extra files" would mean "file that _is_ there but _should_not_
be there", while the actual error message would seem to indicate that
the "file bfd.h _is_not_ there but _should_ be there".

In either case I ran the sugggested ``cvs up'' command (with the -q
option, to avoid the plethora of "Updating <dirname>" messages) and
nothing out of the ordinary shows up.

I probably ought to mention a couple more items:

* This happens in two separate sources trees, and
* it happens with a completely empty TOOLDIR (and OBJDIR and DESTDIR)

And one more item which likely will help find the real culprit:

Running the exact same with -j12 succeeds!  So it would seem
that something somewhere (TM) is creating the required bfd.h file, in
the tools-object directory perhaps?
