Use OPT='-va' or -vt to see what actually happens (pipe to file, a lot of data)

What probably happens is that files found in the search path trick the
compiler into recompile the RTL.  This fails, because it is done from
the wrong dir, and the include paths aren't set up properly.

With above parameters you can see which files trigger this. Look for phrases
similar too "xxx is newer than yyy, recompiling", and the lines just above
