Moving work trees around is not a good idea. Your description is not
particularly clear, so it hard to say if you did this. In general, its
much better to start from an empty directory an just do

ecosconfig new pc redboot
ecosconfig import ../anoncvs/packages/hal/i386/pc/current/misc/redboot_FLOPPY.ecm
ecosconfig tree
make -s
