This sometimes occurs if the time stamp of the source files are dated
in the future in relation to the actual system clock. Make sure that
your system clock is set correctly and reboot the machine. Then try
your compile again.

This is not a bug but a feature of make. I usually see the message
when building on an NFS mounted file system where the NFS server has
a different time than the machine I am building on.
