It's possible you're falling afoul of the subsecond timestamp support
added in GNU make.

You might try upgrading to the latest version (3.79.1), and building GNU
make with the configuration option --disable-nsec-timestamps to disable
support for subsecond timestamps.  Hopefully that will solve this
