I had the same thing happen to me yesterday abuse six hours into
a -current "make release".  The problem didn't recur when I reran
"make release".  One possible quirk is that I am mounting the scratch
area from a 4.1-stable NFS server.  Notice that only the .a file is
getting built, and not the .o files.  I suspect that the file
timestamps are getting messed up, causing make to rebuild the .a
