Did you invoke any of the build steps with a relative path (eg,
"../configure")?  There are some known problems in beta1 with
reducing relative paths to absolute.  I think this probably
explains your issue, though I did not see that specific misbehavior
while investigating the bug.  Should be fixed in beta2.
