I was able to reproduce this issue and I'm not sure
who to blame for that. This problem occurs only in
combination with the direct call of Make via Sudo.
It does not occur with any other method such as:

    sudo bash
    make clean

    make clean

    su -c 'make clean'

The problem is that our main Makefile assumes PWD to
be always set, and Sudo seems to unset it for whatever
reason. I just committed a patch that fixes this issue:


This is available in the stable branch as well as the
default (development) branch.
