What are the contents of your build directory after running cmake? I once had 
the strange problem that the makefile etc was generated one directory upstairs, 
i.e. in graphics/ instead of graphics/build, and I had to run make from there 
to compile. Although this problem doesn't show up here anymore in the current 
version, you could check if that's what stopping your make.
