That the time changed in a way that make did not expect (backwards I
think ... stop time travelling, immediately!)

make uses file modification times to know what to recompile, if the clock 
is not reliable you may get a build where it didn't compile everything.

NTP and other things that update the system time could cause this.
(although I think ntp is smarter than to let time move backwards)

And since you are compiling on RH7.2, just do what Jeremy says:
"Until I have the auto-detection in, hack the Makefile and add
 the entry -DBROKEN_REDHAT_7_SYSTEM_HEADERS to the CFLAGS line."
