Strange, but I can't repro it. I use make O=<absolute path> all the
time with no issues. I just tried specifically with a make O=.build,
where .build is inside Linux repo, and it still worked fine. See also
be40920fbf10 ("tools: Let O= makes handle a relative path with -C
option") which was supposed to address such an issue. So I'm wondering
what exactly is causing this problem.
