You cut off way too much there.  It looks like the error occoured
somewhere above that, or got lost somehow.  Are you doing a
multithreaded compile (using -j) ?  If so try without it since at least
then the errors might be more obvious.  Also adding V=1 to the make
arguments makes it show all the compile steps rather than the short

Unfortunately the output you quoted just says something went wrong above
