I think the problem is that 'bmake' does not consider the targets
'foo' and './foo' as being the same.

In the case of the iconv_open module the error message was

    don't know how to make iconv_open-aix.h

and the Makefile has a rule for constructing ./iconv_open-aix.h
but no rule for constructing iconv_open-aix.h.

In your report with the error message

    don't know how to make ./lib/libhello.a

it's probably the other way around.
