Please always remember to include the version of GNU make you're using.

Curdir can't really fail: it just gets set to the working directory.  So
there must be something about your shell setup or environment or
makefiles that's causing the problem.

Please create a very small example makefile that still exhibits the
problem, then send it along with a sample invocation, the output you
got, and what you expected to get.
