Thanks for the response.  I did figure this out and, as you might have 
expected, the problem was between the keyboard and chair.  I did have the path 
correct, but the path wasn't correct relative to the directory in which make 
was at the time of invocation.  Thus, the error.  I kept missing it because the 
path *was correct*, but not correct for usage.
