maybe add a test right after the creation of DerivedConstants.h in 

DerivedConstants.h : mkDerivedConstantsHdr
	./mkDerivedConstantsHdr >$@
	test -f $@ || exit 1

at least that will tell us whether it was never there to start with, or it 
got removed later on.

If it weren't for the fact that this seems repeatable, I'd say you have 
need to run fsck on that filesystem.  There's definitely something strange 
going on...
