Okay, I now seem to understand what is going on.  I've got the source
in ~/src-cvs/gnu/gcc/, and a build directory ~/src-cvs/gnu/gcc/BUILD/
in the source tree.  Usually (i.e. for other targets), this works
well, however ~/src-cvs/gnu/gcc/BUILD/Makefile contains a VPATH

        VPATH = ../../../gcc/ada

During the compiler build process, this refers to the directory
~/src-cvs/gcc/gcc/ada/, but when make invokes itself recursively in
the directory ~/src-cvs/gnu/gcc/BUILD/gcc/ada/rts/, the VPATH forces
make to in ~/src-cvs/gnu/gcc/BUILD/gcc/ada/, where it finds some
already existing object files. :-/

Oh dear, I've just noticed that this kind of setup is officially
unsupported.  Oh well.
