Signal 127 usually means that some application could not be exec'd.  Look
at the make output before that point.  Try getting make to echo your
commands (by running it with -n, for example) and check that all the
necessary programs exist and are executable.  Check your shell settings,
check the make mode (try explicitly passing --unix to make).
