Assuming it built before but doesn't build now:
make clean does not do complete cleaning, some stuff remains on disk and
can create problems. I can blame the overcomplicated build system.
Anyway try git clean -f -x, or do a clean checkout from git (or faster: git
clone from one directory to another, but then you lose git remotes).

If it never built for you before, then no amount of cleaning is going to
fix it. Show the errors which you receive.
