The compiler always only knows all targets for a single architecture. 
Unless you have a native ARM or a cross-compiler for ARM, it's normal 
that it doesn't know any ARM targets (just like a native ARM or 
cross-compiler for ARM doesn't know any non-ARM targets).

Try adding OS_TARGET=embedded to your "make all CPU_TARGET=arm" 
invocation in the top level directory (assuming you've set up your 
environment for cross-compiling to embedded).
