It will be filled after calling `make'.  The target specific
subdirectories are configured later in the `make' step.

That doesn't work.  Your first configure has created
everything needed by winsup.  You should either call
`make all-target-winsup' in the toplevel build dir or
just don't build in the whole src directory but checkout
only the relevant parts:

	cvs co winsup

or, if you also want to build `dumper.exe':

	cvs co winsup naked-intl naked-bfd
