       I do not know whether this is the problem in the case of the OP.  It

       with a colon, problems can develop.

   If it is not easy to fix this problem, please don't worry about it too
   much.  It would be worth a small effort, but not a large one.

I set CDPATH in my shell to ~/, a highly inappropriate value for
emacs/Makefile.in and did:

make distclean
./configure --without-toolkit-scroll-bars
make bootstrap
sudo make install

without any problems after applying the trivial patch below.

A caveat is in order though.  I am not an expert on Makefile.in.
If Makefile.in for some strange reason needs to access the user's
CDPATH, then I am suggesting something dangerous, even though it works
perfectly for me.  (I usually do not have CDPATH set.)  This seems
excessively unlikely to me.
